A message from the Public Works Department…

Welcome from the employees of the Public Works Department. It is with great pride that we serve the citizens of New Whiteland.

We at the Public Works Department are committed to providing the highest quality service to you our customers. With you as our partner, we will continue to strive for excellence.

Mosquito Control

The Town of New Whiteland no longer sprays or fogs for mosquitos.  After much research we found that fogging only kills about 1% of adult mosquitos.  The fogging also created health issues and concerns for many of our residents.  Beginning in 2014 we began treating the mosquito problem areas using a larvcide tablet which kills the larva before they hatch.  The larvcide tablets are placed in any areas of standing water on town owned or public property.  Residents are encouraged to check their property for any containers that might have standing water such as birdbaths, tires, barrels, even pools.  Due to the heavy amounts of rainfall we have experienced this summer the mosquitos are thriving.  By eliminating standing water or breeding areas on your property you will help with the mosquito control efforts.
