The Department invites public comment on a proposal to clean-up Operable Unit 2 of (OU-2) the Whittington Woods (DE-1509) located off of Minnies Lane in Bear, New Castle County.

The Site will be subject to the following key remedial action amendment: the recording of an Environmental Covenant changing the Use Limitation from solely open space or recreational to non-residential types permitted within commercial, manufacturing, or industrial districts respectively.
