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 Brownfield Development Agreement (BDA).

Identified by New Castle County as tax parcel numbers 26-022.30-367 and 26-022.30-366, the Site may have had a release of hazardous substances as a result of historical activities on site.
