The Department invites public comment on a proposal to clean-up the 1145 Savannah Road Site (DE-1751) located at 1145 Savannah Road in Lewes, Delaware. Historically, the Site operated as a fueling station until the 1990s, with four underground storage tanks (USTs) reported as being removed from the Site in 1993. Four aboveground petroleum storage tanks were historically present at the Site and removed sometime between 2002 and 2007.
The Site will be subject to the following remedial actions: development and compliance with a Contaminated Materials Management Plan (CMMP); development and implementation of a Long-Term Stewardship (LTS) Plan including groundwater monitoring; and recording of an Environmental Covenant restricting groundwater withdrawal, restricting excavation greater than 2 feet, and requiring compliance with the CMMP and LTS Plan.
Details of the Proposed Plan are available online at: den.dnrec.delaware.gov/Detail/FacilityDetail.aspx?id=10764785&piid=615532
The comment period ends on January 4, 2022. For additional information, please contact Mariya Chiger, Project Manager at (302) 395-2600 or via email at RS_Public_Comments@delaware.gov.
