Artesian And The Town Of Chesapeake City, Maryland Complete Connection To Supply Water To The Town

Artesian Water Company, Inc., a subsidiary of Artesian Resources Corporation (NASDAQ: ARTNA), and the Town of Chesapeake City are pleased to announce the successful completion of an interconnection that will provide a new source of high quality water service to the Chesapeake City community.

Artesian and the Town of Chesapeake City placed in service an interconnection and 1.57 miles of new water main to provide water to the Town from Artesian’s Chesapeake City Road plant, which is located in Delaware. Artesian installed 2,286 feet of 12-inch ductile iron main in Delaware while the Town installed approximately 6,000 feet of 12-inch ductile iron main in Maryland.

The completion of this project enables the Town to place its existing two water plants off line and no longer bear the high operational cost of their iron removal systems. “It has been a fantastic partnership with Artesian Water,” said Dean Geracimos, Mayor of Chesapeake City. “We are very happy to be able to shut down both water plants and to save the Town well over $100,000 a year. It was not only a smart business move but also a great move to provide residents with high quality drinking water.”

Dian C. Taylor, Chair, President and CEO of Artesian Resources said “We are pleased to be able to provide the Town with a safe and reliable source of high quality treated water. It was our pleasure to partner with the Mayor and Town Council to get this project to completion.”

Currently the Town of Chesapeake City, with a population of almost 700, serves public water to residences and businesses. It is expected that the Town will use 60,000 to 120,000 gallons per day, depending on the season. In addition to supplying water to the Town, it is expected that the new connection will also serve the Bohemia Manor School. Artesian’s Chesapeake City Road plant is capable of producing up to 3 million gallons of water a day and is part of Artesian’s regional system with a production capacity of up to 28 million gallons per day.
