Who authorized this program?

At the request of County Council, the State of Delaware enacted enabling legislation on September 10, 2021, that allowed New Castle County to create Stormwater Maintenance Districts.  New Castle County Council followed up with its own legislation on January 11, 2022, establishing the New Castle County Stormwater Maintenance District Program. Public Works has established standard forms and a policy to further detail the program. You can download a copy of the policy here.
