The US Environmental Protection Agency has announced a public meeting next Tuesday, February 13 to discuss the Hockessin Groundwater Site, and proposals to fund remediation of that legacy groundwater pollution.
The meeting will be held from 6:30pm – 8:30pm in the Hockessin Memorial Hall, 610 Yorklyn Road.
State environmental and public health officials have stated there are no current or imminent health risks associated with the groundwater site. Following other meetings on the issue, the EPA is proposing the site be added to the National Priorities List (NPL), which would allow for a potential funding source to clean up the groundwater pollution. The meeting is intended to offer a review of the existing issues and seek public comment.
The EPA mailed a postcard notification to over 1,400 residents and businesses in the Hockessin community about the issue and the NPL proposal. For more information, please follow this link.
