Tidewater Utilities Inc., a water utility serving over 42,000 businesses and residences throughout Delaware, recently honored several students for their outstanding water-related projects in the 2014 Sussex County Science Fair.
Winners were: Kathryn Donati from Debbie Fees' seventh-grade class at Sussex Academy, whose project was Number of Microorganisms in Water After Filtration; Griffin McCormick from Cheryl Rehrig’s ninth-grade class at Indian River High School, whose project was Water You Really Drinking?; and Lance White from Timothy Proseus’s 10th-grade class at Cape Henlopen High School, whose project was Acidity vs. Algae Growth.
