The Town of Laurel has applied for a renewal and modification of its public water allocation which serves approximately 4,000 people in Sussex County.
The application includes three existing public wells and one proposed well. The requested allocation is 0.96 million gallons (MG) per day, 27.6 MG per month, and 222.0 MG per year.
A public hearing on the above applications will NOT be held unless the Secretary of DNREC determines that a public hearing is in the public interest or if a written meritorious objection to the application is received by August 5, 2019, at 4:30 p.m. A public hearing request shall be deemed meritorious if it exhibits a familiarity with the application and provides a reasoned statement of the action’s probable impact.
