Final Plan of Remedial Action for the 1 Forge Drive Site (DE-1730)

Division of Waste and Hazardous Substances

Published: April 7, 2021

The Department has adopted a plan regarding the clean-up of the 1 Forge Drive Site located in Newark, DE. The Site was once used for the manufacturing of silicon-carbon based composite parts and ceramic parts and was also the location of several former heating oil underground storage tanks (USTs). The proposed clean-up requirements include an Environmental Covenant (EC) restricting the Site to commercial use only, prohibiting the use of groundwater at the Site, and a Contaminated Materials Management Plan (CMMP) to enable construction workers to safely handle any potential contaminated soil and groundwater at the Site.

DNREC issued public notice of the Proposed Plan for the 1 Forge Drive Site on March 10, 2021. There were no comments or questions from the public regarding the Proposed Plan. Details of the Final Plan are online at:
