Artesian Employees And Volunteers To Protect Water Quality, Celebrate Earth Day At Annual Christina River Watershed Cleanup

For the 21 st consecutive year, Artesian Resources (NASDAQ: ARTNA), a leading provider of water, wastewater and engineering services on the Delmarva Peninsula, is again sponsoring the Christina River Watershed cleanup. In the effort to improve wildlife habitats and clear debris from local waterways in New Castle County, Artesian invites its employees, their families and members of the community to volunteer Saturday, April 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the cleanup sites.

As one of the founding sponsors of the annual event, Artesian will again captain two cleanup sites, Churchmans Marsh at Christiana and the Churchmans Boat Ramp, where the company will provide cleanup materials to volunteers, help remove large debris and transport volunteers around the site. The utility company will also divide trash and recyclable materials to minimize waste entering landfills.

“The River cleanup is our biggest and most important community event each year,” said Dian Taylor, chair, president and CEO of Artesian Resources. “Keeping the Christina River Watershed clean is extremely important for maintaining and preserving water quality in New Castle County. The event is a rewarding way for us to get involved and make a difference for our environment and our community.”

Since the cleanup began in 1992, more than 330 tons of tires, appliances, household items and other trash have been cleared from the Christina River and other tributaries.

Those interested in volunteering should register by visiting or by calling (302) 838-1897.

All registered volunteers will receive a 2012 Christina River Watershed Cleanup t-shirt designed by Michael Cronin, a Caravel Academy high school senior.
