Delmarva Veteran Builders Awarded Bethany Beach Pump House Project

SALISBURY, Md. – May 14, 2015 – Delmarva Veteran Builders, the region’s only commercial construction firm dedicated to bringing employment to U.S. Armed Forces Veterans, announced being awarded Phase II of the Bethany Beach Pump House project at 434 Collins Avenue, Bethany Beach, Delaware. 

“We are excited to get started on the Bethany Beach pump house because it is DVB’s first municipal project, said Chris Eccleston, Delmarva Veteran Builders, president. “The newest addition to the team, Lee Beauchamp, brings an extensive amount of experience to this type of project from the work he did in the public sector with water and waste water initiatives.” 

The scope of work includes the construction of a 700 square foot town water system pumping facility. The pole building will house two high service water pumps. As a resort town, Bethany Beach experiences a drastic flux in its population during the summer months. The demand for water increases with the growth in visitors and residents in the town. In order to maintain pressure in the system the town was required to keep its original one million gallon tank full at all times. With the addition of the new tank, the town will have more options to keep the necessary water pressure to meet the demands in the summer and winter months. 

“We added a second water tower to our system due to demand and water age and needed a pumping station to connect the two towers,” said Ron Foreman, Director of the Water Department for Bethany Beach, Delaware. “We hired Delmarva Veteran Builders to build the pump house so we could effectively control and maintain the appropriate pressure in the system.” 

The project is scheduled for a Memorial Day completion date. For more information, visit
