The purpose of the hearing is to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the permit application. Prior to the utilization of biosolids under an agricultural utilization permit, biosolids are required to undergo a process to significantly reduce pathogens and must be analyzed for a list of specific parameters including nutrient content and metals, to ensure the biosolids meet State and Federal regulatory requirements.
DNREC-SWDS received a permit application from Kent County Levy Court. The application proposes permitting additional land for the agricultural utilization of biosolids to the list of farms that the County currently has permitted for this use. Currently the County has an agricultural utilization permit for agricultural utilization of biosolids, onto lands known as the West Farm, Kent County Sludge Farm, Nyle Calloway Farm, Blessing Farm, and the Goldinger Farm. The proposed new agricultural utilization site, known as the Vineyard Farm, consists of approximately 150 acres of land of which approximately 120 acres are proposed for land application. The Vineyard Farm is located approximately 1 mile southwest of Frederica, Delaware on the east side of Carpenter Bridge Road (Road 35). Should you need additional information, please contact Brian Churchill at (302) 739-9946 or Brian.Churchill@state.de.us. ; The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Controlâ€™s Surface Water Discharges Section (DNREC-SWDS)in conjunction with Kent County Levy Court, will conduct a public hearing on the permit application.
