The Department has adopted a plan regarding the clean-up of the Amtrak Former Fueling Facility, Operable Unit 3 (OU-3) located at 4001 Vandever Avenue in Wilmington. The site includes approximately 79 acres of the Amtrak Wilmington Maintenance Shops. Remediation will include soil removal and disposal, groundwater migration controls, stabilization of sediments, and soil capping. Investigation results for the remainder of the Wilmington Maintenance Shops are currently under review by DNREC and EPA. As such, remedial activities required for the Amtrak Former Fueling Facility (DE-0266) site may be scheduled in concert with remedial activities required by DNREC and EPA for the Maintenance Facility (DE-0170) site.
DNREC issued public notice of the Proposed Plan of Remedial Action (Proposed Plan) for OU-3 of the Amtrak Former Fueling Facility on July 19, 2020. There were no comments or questions from the public regarding the Proposed Plan.
Details of the Final Plan of Remedial Action are available online at: www.nav.dnrec.delaware.gov/DEN3/
