For the first time in 10 years, Dover, Del., plans to come to market with a competitive sale of water and sewer revenue bonds.

About $4 million of the proceeds from the Aug. 6 sale of the $6.285 million of bonds will be used to finance improvements to the water and sewer system, which serves Dover and surrounding areas of Kent County. Dover is investing in its system because it plans to construct a gravity sewer system that will feed a pump station within Garrison Oak Technical Park. The park contains a solar electric generation facility, and there are plans for another power plant run by natural gas in the park, according to sources involved in the sale.
