Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control | Division of Watershed Stewardship | Office of the Secretary | Date Posted: Friday, February 1, 2019

DOVER – Revised Delaware sediment and stormwater regulations from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control will become effective Feb. 11, DNREC Secretary Shawn M. Garvin announced today. The regulations were developed with diverse public participation through a Regulatory Advisory Committee (RAC), Secretary Garvin said, with RAC members forging a consensus on a range of regulatory issues. The revised sediment and stormwater regulations announced today correct a previous procedural flaw in the prior adoption of regulations by DNREC, as initially determined by the Delaware Superior Court, and later upheld by the State Supreme Court. Revisions to the regulations that go into effect this month included incorporating parts of the former DNREC Technical Document guidance into the actual regulations, consistent with the judicial opinions.
