FINAL PLAN OF REMEDIAL ACTION FOR THE
CAVALIERS COUNTRY CLUB - OPERABLE UNIT 1b Site (DE-1600)
The Department invited public comment on a proposal to clean-up Cavaliers Country Club - Operable Unit 1B (OU-1B or Site) located at 100 Addison Drive in Newark. The Site is part of a former 18-hole golf course that has been divided into three operable units, OU-1A, OU-1B, and OU-2, to facilitate cleanup and redevelopment. Cavaliers Country Club-OU-1B consists of approximately 70 acres located on the eastern half of the 18-hole golf course including the club house and parking lot.
Cavaliers Country Club-OU-1B will be subject to the following remedial actions: the submittal of a Remedial Action Work Plan, which specifies the methods to be used to remediate the Site including the removal and disposal of primarily arsenic-impacted soils, blending of arsenic-impacted soils, or capping with impervious material (e.g., buildings, asphalt, or concrete) to meet DNREC Hazardous Substance Cleanup Act (HSCA) standards for all contaminants; and the recording of an Environmental Covenant restricting property use to non-residential at certain locations, restrict interference with remedy at those locations, limiting groundwater withdrawal, requiring compliance with the Long-Term Stewardship (LTS) Plan, and compliance with the Contaminated Materials Management Plan (CMMP).
DNREC issued public notice of the Proposed Plan for the Cavaliers Country Club OU-1B Site on January 6, 2019. There were no comments or questions from the public regarding the Proposed Plan. Details of the Final Plan are available at the office of DNREC-SIRS (391 Lukens Drive, New Castle, DE, 19720), or online at: http://www.nav.dnrec.delaware.gov/DEN3/
