NOTIFICATION OF NEGOTIATIONS FOR A BROWNFIELDS DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT FOR THE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY 14TH AND WALNUT STREET SITE (DE-1534)
Pursuant to the Hazardous Substance Cleanup Act (HSCA), 7 Del. C. Chapter 91, §9126, the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) is required to issue a public notice within twenty days after entering into negotiations for a Brownfields Development Agreement (BDA). A BDA is an agreement between DNREC and a Brownfields developer with respect to a Certified Brownfield Site that sets forth a scope of work and schedule of remedial activities during the development of the Site.
DNREC’s Site Investigation and Restoration Section (DNREC-SIRS) is negotiating a BDA with Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County regarding the Habitat for Humaity 14th and Walnut Street Site, located at 14th and Walnut Streets in Wilmington, Delaware. Comprised of eight tax parcels identified by New Castle County as tax parcel numbers 26-029.30-050 through -057, the 0.55 acre Site may have had a release of hazardous substances as a result of historical fill at the Site.
