DNREC-Site Investigation and Restoration Section (DNREC-SIRS)
Amended PROPOSED PLAN OF REMEDIAL ACTION FOR THE
Sussex Lumber Site (Operable unit 1 and 2) (DE-0118)
The Department invites public comment on an Amended proposal to clean-up the Sussex Lumber Site located in Lewes. The approximately 7 acre Site was used as a lumber preparation, treatment, and storage facility. Due to the treatment of the lumber, the site is contaminated with arsenic and hexavalent chromium. Site soil is also contaminated with polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons from the site’s use as a commercial property. The Site requires limited excavation and capping as well as limiting groundwater use.
Details of the Amended Proposed Plan are available at the office of DNREC-SIRS (391 Lukens Drive, New Castle, DE, 19720), at 21309 Berlin Road, Suite 2, Georgetown, DE 19947, or online at: http://www.nav.dnrec.delaware.gov/DEN3/
The comment period ends on July 31, 2018. For additional information, please contact Patrick Boettcher, Project Manager at (302) 395-2600 or via email at Patrick.Boettcher@state.de.us
