One Hundred Miles and the Glynn Environmental Coalition are teaming up to hold a webinar Tuesday evening regarding work done and proposed at the Terry Creek Superfund site.
“The Terry Creek Superfund site has been threatening our environment and public health in Brunswick every day for the past 107 years,” One Hundred Miles stated in a Facebook post announcing the event. “Unfortunately, the current cleanup plan presented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not ensure the responsible party does enough to protect our community, wildlife and landscapes from this toxic pollution.”
The webinar is billed as part educational and part call to action.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia filed the Terry Creek consent decree between the Justice Department and Hercules in May, in which it stated Hercules is the responsible party, but does not admit any liability arising from the official complaint, nor acknowledges that the release of toxaphene or other dangerous chemicals amounts to seriously endangering public health or the environment.
Public comment on the consent decree is open through Aug. 21, and documents related to the case can be accessed at justice.gov/enrd/consent-decree/us-v-hercules-llc.
To RSVP for the webinar, people need to go to bit.ly/2M3bx1N and enter in their name, email address, phone number they’ll use to call into the webinar, and how many people are planning to listen from that call-in line. It takes place Tuesday at 5:30 p.m., and is scheduled to last for an hour.
