Public Hearing: Delaware Storage and Pipeline Company Coastal Zone Permit

Date & Time:

DNREC Auditorium
89 Kings Highway
Dover, Delaware

DNREC will conduct a public hearing (Docket #2019-P-CZ-0027) on an application by Delaware Storage and Pipeline Company (DSPC) for a Coastal Zone permit to permit changes at its facility on Port Mahon Road, east of Dover.

Delaware Storage and Pipeline Company (DSPC) has applied for a standard Coastal Zone permit under the Regulations Governing Delaware’s Coastal Zone, to construct a new storage building and undergo a process change to inject chemicals into the jet fuel supplied to Dover Air Force Base. The changes would increase cost-effectiveness at the company’s facility, located at 987 Port Mahon Rd., in Little Creek

DSPC is the sole provider of jet fuel to the Dover Air Force Base and wants to increase cost-effectiveness by injecting additives onsite rather than receiving jet fuel that is pre-mixed. The proposed project would result in approximately 1.23 pounds per year of air emissions from an icing inhibitor and approximately 2.45 pounds per year of air emissions from increased truck traffic from deliveries to the site. DSPC is proposing a $1,000 donation to the Kent County Conservatory for land acquisition in the Coastal Zone in Kent County as an offset. Utilization of the funds for an easement of forestland would result in removal of 29 pounds of pollutants annually.

The application, which can be viewed at, is considered administratively complete and sufficient to proceed to public hearing. For additional information on the application, contact Erin Wilson, Division of Climate, Coastal, & Energy, at 302.739.9283 or by email at

Persons wishing to comment on this application may do so either orally or in written form at the public hearing on November 19, 2019. In lieu of attending the public hearing, written comment may be submitted to the Hearing Officer via the online comment form, via email to, or via USPS to the Hearing Officer at the address below.
