UPCOMING EVENTS

 

We Are Back! The GEC 1st Friday Lunch is moving back to the old I-HOP location, now the Sunrise Dinner. Bobby Howard has warmly invited the GEC back to the newly remodeled private dining room at the Sunrise Diner! We have some interesting speakers lined up…

 

GEC 1st Friday Lunch, January 5, 11:15, Sunrise Dinner, the Sunrise Diner at 5031 New Jesup Highway, Brunswick. Meet Rick Frey, the St Marys Riverkeeper. Winding between Georgia and Florida over 130-miles from the Okefenokee Swamp to the Atlantic Ocean, the St. Marys River is scenic and historic. The dark waters of the St. Marys River are nearly pristine and relatively free from commercial impact. Rick’s job is more challenging than that of a typical Riverkeeper because of the different rules and regulations governing waterways in both states, as well as traveling to two state capitals while serving as an advocate of the river.

 

GEC 1st Friday Lunch, February 2, 11:15, Sunrise Diner (former I-HOP) 5031 New Jesup Hwy., Brunswick. Going Hog Wild! Kara Day, biologist from GADNR Wildlife Resources Division's Game Management, will discuss the dangers caused by invasive species and what they and other agencies are doing to combat them.

Superfund Site Spreading

 

Underground and out of site, the contaminated groundwater at the Brunswick Wood Preserving Superfund Site continues to spread.  “Some areas have less contaminated groundwater beyond the barrier walls, while other areas now have contaminated groundwater where it had not been contaminated before,’ said Dr. Peter deFur, technical advisor for the Glynn Environmental Coalition. 

 

“In March 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency completed the installation of an underground slurry wall and cap at the Brunswick Wood Preserving Superfund Site,” said Dr. deFur.  “But some contaminants remained outside of the wall.”

 

“The EPA is preparing a report about the technologies available to clean up the spreading contaminated groundwater,’ said Daniel Parshley, Project Manager for the Glynn Environmental Coalition.  “The Coalition will have Environmental Stewardship Concepts, or ESC, review the EPA report and produce a summary for our community.”

 

“Groundwater treatment at the Site with oxygen continues but the ozone and hydrogen peroxide have been discontinued,” said Parshley.  “EPA efforts to remove the source areas contaminating the groundwater will continue while the EPA studies the problem.”

 

“Dr. deFur and his scientists on the ESC staff have been following developments at the Brunswick Wood Preserving Superfund Site and reporting to our community by way of an EPA Technical Assistance Grant to the Coalition,’ said Parshley.  “We will continue to keep our community appraised about this developing situation.”
