The Department has adopted a plan regarding the clean-up of the Former Milford Fertilizer Property (DE-1412) Site located in Middletown. The Site has had various uses including agricultural use and commercial use by a fertilizer company. The Site requires an Environmental Covenant (EC) with restriction of groundwater withdrawal and commercial usage only, a Contaminated Materials Management Plan (CMMP) and long-term monitoring to ensure elimination of exposure to existing Site soils and groundwater for future Site users.

DNREC issued a public notice of the Proposed Plan for the Former Milford Fertilizer Site on September 28, 2022. There were no comments or questions from the public regarding the Proposed Plan. Details of the Final Plan are available online at:
