The DNREC Division of Waste and Hazardous Substances protects the environment and human health and safety.
Report environmental spills, violations of environmental laws and regulations, and other issues to DNREC.
The Division oversees the construction, installation and repair of boilers and pressure vessels in Delaware. It provides education, inspection and regulatory oversight.
Where toxic substances affect Delaware’s water resources DNREC works across multiple divisions, on a watershed scale, to address pollution problems caused by toxic substances.
DNREC and DHSS are working with federal agencies to protect the environment and public health in Delaware from the effects of a group of synthetic chemicals known as PFAS.
The Division uses an online system to collect, store and analyze data about facilities/sites that are the subject of regulatory, remediation or other management efforts.
