Meet Tidewater Utilities, Inc.
2020 Superstars in Business
Doing right for communities when disaster strikes isn’t easy. When COVID-19 began to spread across Delaware, ensuring uninterrupted water service to support public health protection became Tidewater’s primary focus. As essential workers, they continued to operate plants, monitor water quality, and maintain infrastructure.

Tidewater Utilities also leapt into action by providing support to Delawareans who became unemployed and relying on food pantries to support their families. By double-matching employee contributions to nonprofits, Tidewater was able to donate funds that helped provide critical equipment for first responders and support replenishing food banks.

and involve employees in volunteering initiatives that play a role in maintaining and shaping the future of Delaware. Read more >

Understanding the role of office
environments when returning to work

As more employees return to the workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic, understanding the role office environments play is extremely important. A critical element to any office/workspace is air circulation within the space, and how it can be designed, constructed, and controlled to reduce the risk of spreading contaminated aerosols. DEDC, LLC and Wohlsen Construction have collaborated on projects that involve sophisticated solutions to the distribution of air and the control of infectious airborne pathogens within an office building that meaningfully contribute to worker safety during this challenging time.
