The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Division of Water, hereby gives notice that 120 Hay Road, LLC has purchased the property from IKO Productions Inc. and requested to modify its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit No. DE 0050857 (State Permit WPCC 3110F/79) to discharge storm water to the Delaware River. This site is now a vacant site that was previously used for shingle manufacturing. All buildings have been demolished and aboveground storage tanks have been removed.
Based on a preliminary staff review and application of lawful standards and regulations, the Department proposes to modify this permit, subject to certain effluent limitations and conditions. The proposed determinations are tentative. Persons wishing to comment upon or object to the proposed determinations are invited to submit same in writing to the Commercial and Government Services Section of the Division of Water, at the address listed below, no later than 30 days from this notice. All comments received prior to said date will be considered in the formulation of final determinations regarding this application.
A public hearing on the above will NOT be held unless the Secretary of DNREC receives a request by 4:30 pm on January 16, 2024, or if the Secretary determines that a public hearing is in the public interest. A request for a hearing shall be in writing and shall state the nature of the issues to be raised at the hearing. It must also show familiarity with the proposal and a reasoned statement of the permit’s probable impact.
The applications, fact sheets, and permits are available for inspection or copies may be obtained by contacting:
