The Delaware Freedom of Information Act (29 Del. Code, Chapter 100), generally referred to as “FOIA,” ensures that the public has easy access to public records held by the Sussex Conservation District (SCD).

All FOIA requests must be in writing and adequately describe the records sought in sufficient detail to enable SCD to locate such records with reasonable effort. The requesting party must be as specific as possible when requesting records. To assist SCD in locating the requested records, the Sussex Conservation District may ask that the requesting party provide additional information such as the types of records, dates, parties to correspondence, and subject matter of the requested records.

Information needed in the request:

  • File to be viewed (by project name)
  • Reason for viewing a file.
  • Contact information completed in its entirety.

When possible, all records will be sent electronically. If copies are requested, a fee may apply.

See the SCD FOIA Fee Schedule
