Delaware's Watershed Scale Strategy for Contaminant Management

Time:   1:00 pm to 2:00 pm 

Date: Tuesday, January 25, 2022


Representatives from The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control's (DNREC) Division of Watershed Stewardship (John Cargill) and Division of Waste and Hazardous Substances (Todd Keyser) will present information related to how Delaware is trying to tackle the complex interaction between state water and waste programs as it relates to solving toxic contaminant driven water quality impairments and fish consumption advisories. The focus of the discussion will be on PCBs in the Christina River watershed, and will include information related to watershed scale sampling of sediment/water/fish, waste site PCB mass loading studies, MS4 PCB trackback study results, and an example of how paying attention to all of these components, holistically, can result in coordinated cleanup activities. Time permitting, an update to WATARs most recent innovative sediment remediation project (A-Street Ditch Carbon Project), as well as a primer for DNREC’s Christina & Brandywine River Remediation Restoration and Resilience (CBR4) initiative will be provided.
