A federal Superfund site in coastal Brunswick is growing. The site is where a wood treatment plant contaminated the groundwater before the facility went bankrupt in 1991. Federal officials built an underground wall to contain the contamination two years ago. But a member of the Glynn Environmental Coalition says some chemicals remained outside the wall.
A coastal-area environmental group and five public agencies have come together to clear up confusion about fish advisories in the Brunswick area. The partnership aims to put in one place the myriad advice fishermen receive about which fish to eat, where to catch them and how much is too much. State officials produce a 60 page book on the topic.
The Georgia Department of Public Health is conducting a survey of people who fish. Health officials say they've found PCB's in some fish in the Ocmulgee River and it's tributaries. Source of contamination could become Superfund site.
