For more Site-specific information, please see DNREC-SIRB’s superfund site files database in DNREC’s navigator at or please contact the project manager, Karissa Hendershot or Qazi Salahuddin at (302) 395-2600. ; On May 4, 2012, DNREC issued a termination of Voluntary Cleanup Program Agreement and formal notice of liability to Mr. Cristino Cruz, Jr., owner of Junior’s Auto Repair Co., in order to perform a Remedial Investigation/Feasibility (RI/FS) Study of Junior Auto Parts Site, located at 621 Garasches Lane in Wilmington, Delaware 19805. DNREC determined that satisfactory progress was not being made at the site. DNREC then requested that Mr. Cruz begin negotiations for a Consent Decree to conduct the RI/FS and/or Remedial Action. On July 25, 2012, DNREC sent a notice of enforcement proceedings to Mr. Cruz allowing him until August 2, 2012 to sign a Consent Decree or proceed through enforcement. Mr. Cruz responded that he was willing to negotiate with DNREC in late August 2012, but has since failed to proceed with negotiations. Therefore, DNREC will continue with an enforcement action unless the Consent Decree is signed, pursuant to §9109(a)(3) of HSCA, to require a remediation of the site.
