Denali Water Solutions, LLC. has submitted a permit application requesting their existing AGU permit for the land treatment of approved wastes at nine farms be renewed and has requested a tenth application site, the Luff Farm, be added to the permit, under the Department’s Guidance and Regulations Governing the Land Treatment of Wastes, Part V, Regulations Governing the Land Treatment of Waste Products.
The existing AGU permit authorizes the land application of dissolved air flotation (DAF) solids and other land treatable residuals, that do not contain sanitary (human) waste, as approved by DNREC. Land treatable residuals managed by Denali consist of residuals generated from chicken and pet food processing facilities during the treatment of process wastewater. The nine currently permitted farms known as Schreiber, Seeney, Cain, Masten, Bergold, Winkler, Harrison, Home, and Collison Farms are located within an 8-mile radius of Harrington Delaware and are comprised of a total of approximately 1,500 acres of land that is suitable for land application. The Luff Farm consists of approximately 91 acres of land suitable for land application and is located southwest of the intersection of High Stump Road and Greenville Road, approximately 6 miles southwest of Harrington, Delaware.
