The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, the Division of Public Health and the city of Seaford recently confirmed the city’s public water supply is safe for drinking, cooking and other everyday use.

DNREC and DPH worked with the city to sample Seaford’s drinking water for perfluorinated compounds, and none were found. The agencies’ testing in Seaford was done out of an abundance of caution after the municipal wells in the nearby town of Blades recently tested above the national health advisory level for PFCs as established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
