Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Office of the Secretary announced April 13 that the written public comment period remains open for amended waste transporter permit applications for Denali Water Solutions and Clark Environmental Services, doing business as Chesapeake Environmental Services LLC.

Public hearings for both companies’ amended permit applications were held by the department April 11 in Milton.

DNREC is keeping the record open for written public comment on both permit applications until May 3 after having been made aware that the start of the hearings was delayed and the regular-hours closure of the venue where both hearings were held — the Milton Public Library — precluded additional public comment on both permit applications.

Denali Water Solutions’ application was made to DNREC’s Groundwater Discharges Section for an amendment to the company’s state of Delaware Non-Hazardous Liquid Waste Transporters Permit (DE OH-601) to include transporting other non-sanitary wastewater to the Allen Harim processing facility wastewater treatment plant in Harbeson.

Clarks Environmental Services (dba Chesapeake Environmental Services LLC) also made an application to the Groundwater Discharges Section for an amendment to the company’s State of Delaware Non-Hazardous Liquid Waste Transporters Permit (DE WH-213) to include transporting sludge to the Allen Harim processing facility wastewater treatment plant in Harbeson.

Comments should be directed to DNREC Senior Hearing Officer Robert Haynes, either by email to Robert.Haynes@state.de.us, or via U.S. mail to Robert P. Haynes, Esq., Office of the Secretary, Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
