Possible Cost of Water for Those Impacted by TCE By Bill Mich WBOC TV-16 News (DELMARVA region) January 20, 2014SALISBURY, Md. - As Wicomico County moves forward with the plan for a solution to the problem of TCE in some private wells, the chemical continues to be found in more and more homes.
Out of 270 homes in the Morris Mill/Coulbourne Woods subdivision area, 91 of them have tested positive for TCE since late 2012. Fortunately for Andrea Greiner and her family, their home is not one of the 91, but that doesn't mean Greiner is against having a new water bill in the near future.
…The county's plan is to connect every home in the impacted area to water from the city of Fruitland, whether the home has tested positive for TCE or not. The means a new water bill for homeowners that have never had one before. The county estimates, based on a gauge of 180 gallons per day, that homeowners could see a water rate of $73 a month.
