AMENDED PROPOSED PLAN OF REMEDIAL ACTION FOR THE
OYSTER HOUSE VILLAGE SITE (DE-1573)
The Department invites public comment on a proposal to clean up the Oyster House Village Site (DE-1573) located at south of Route 1 and west of Oyster House Road in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The Site consists of one (1) tax parcel totaling 4.5 acres. The Site is divided into a North Area and a South Area. The North Area has been impacted by methane in the soil caused by organic debris. The South Area has been impacted by metals and semi-volatile compounds (SVOCs). Groundwater has been impacted by pesticide, and one volatile organic compound (VOC).
The remedy consists of: 1) Placement of a cap in the South Area, 2) Submittal of a Remedial Action Work Plan (RAWP) for the North Area to remove buried organic debris and relocation of onsite or disposal off-site of any surface organic debris, 3) placement of an environmental covenant limiting land disturbing activities, limiting groundwater withdrawal, compliance with a contaminated material management plan (CMMP) and Long-Term Management Plan (LTS), 4) preparation of a CMMP for new construction or soil disturbing activities, 5) Development of a DNREC approved Long-Term Stewardship (LTS) Plan to monitor the cap.
Details of the Amended Proposed Plan are available at the office of DNREC (21309 Berlin Road, Suite 2, Georgetown, DE 19947), or online at http://www.nav.dnrec.delaware.gov/DEN3/
