WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - In an effort to attract industrial jobs, New Castle County has appropriated $4 million to extend sewer service to unincorporated land north of Delaware City.

The News Journal reports (https://delonline.us/25Bxg1q) that the project was included in the county capital budget, which was approved last week and outlines more than $55 million in spending on sewer, building and park projects for the upcoming fiscal year.

City officials say about 3,000 acres along the border of the Delaware City refinery needs sewer service to be a viable home to industrial tenants.

County Special Services Department director Wayne Merritt says companies have expressed interest in the land, though there is no specific project for the land at this time. Officials want to make the land, which is zoned for industrial use, ready for tenants to move in.
