Comments Due: Feb. 4, 2022

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Division of Water, hereby gives notice that Sunoco Partners Marketing & Terminals L.P. has applied for reissuance of its National Pollutant Discharge System (NPDES) Permit No. DE0050288 (State Number WPCC 3002G/75) to discharge storm water runoff from its former Ethylene Complex located 1/4 mile east of U.S. Route 13 on the Delaware River in Claymont, just south of the border between the States of Delaware and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. There are eleven (11) storm water outfalls at this site which discharge storm water runoff to Middle Creek and Delaware River. The site includes storage vessels, parking areas, railroad siding, buildings and former manufacturing areas.

Based on a preliminary staff review and application of lawful standards and regulations, the Department proposes to re-issue 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 Surface Water Discharges 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 February 4, 2022, 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:
