From: Erik Peterson

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Delaware's Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

A log of public records requests submitted to the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection that lists the date of request, the requester's name, the requester's organizational affiliation, a description of the request and the date the request was filled. Ideally I would like this information for the period from 2004 to the present.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, and is made in the process of academic research and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

Sincerely,

Erik Peterson

Mr. Peterson, I am in receipt of your 11.3.15 FOIA request, attached. Unfortunately, I did not receive the first request that you referenced in this request.

The information that you are seeking is available, except that our FOIA logs only go back four years, as this is the date of the adoption of the State of Delaware's State-wide FOIA Policy.

I have most of the information in my possession, but will need to gather the logs for the past year or so from DNREC's Divisions, where the logs are kept. Following this email, I will send you what I have on file, and the rest will be requested from the Divisions and I will forward those once received. I do not expect this will take more than a few days.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at: 302-739-9037. Thank you. Jenny Bothell

Mr. Peterson, Please find attached the first batches of our Department FOIA Logs. Each Division keeps them separately. They are labeled by Division (which I will set forth below). I may need to send a few emails as I might exceed the attachment limits on email. Thank you.

DNREC Divisions:

Office of the Secretary
Division of Energy
Division of Watershed Stewardship
Division of Water
Division of Fish and Wildlife
Division of Parks and Recreation
Division of Air and Waste Management (these two Divisions are combined for FOIA as they receive the most FOIAs and have a combined auto-generated FOIA response/log system)

Thanks, these look great! I look forward to receiving the other records when you get a chance.

Mr. Peterson - Please find attached the FOIA Logs for our Air Division and our Waste and Hazardous Substances ('WHS') Division. As I explained before, these two Divisions receive most of our FOIA requests, and are on their own 'automated' system. This is the listing for those two Divisions from 2011 to 2015.

I am sending out requests to our other Divisions for the years that are missing in what I sent to you earlier today. This may take a day or two, depending on those Division's FOIA contacts being in the office...will let you know if it will take any longer than that. Thanks! Jenny Bothell.

Mr. Peterson - I am forwarding the remaining FOIA Logs for time periods that were missing from my last emails.

The only ones I will need to forward next week will be Fish and Wildlife for 2013 thru 2015. The FOIA contact for that Division has been out of the office but will return next week.

I will be forwarding a few more emails that contain the rest of the Logs. Thanks! Have a great Holiday. Jenny Bothell

Division of Energy FOIA Logs

From: Bothell, Jennifer M. (DNREC)

Mr. Peterson - Here is a complete log for the Division of Parks and Recreation. Still need to get you Fish and Wildlife's logs. They probably receive the least requests per year of all of our Divisions, but they will have logs. Thanks! Jenny Bothell
