The Department has adopted a plan regarding the clean-up of Operable Unit 2 of the Whittington Woods Site located in Bear. The OU-2 portion of the Site was part of a former sand and gravel borrow pit that allowed open burning and pallet restoration from the early-1950s to the late- 1960s. The Site requires a 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.
