EPA Requests 90 Day
Extension for Response to First Office of Inspector General Report
EPA Region 4 has asked for a
90-day extension from the December 23, 2005 deadline to respond to the first
Office of Inspector General (OIG) report concerning the Hercules 009
Landfill Superfund Site. The Glynn Environmental Coalition (GEC) did submit
our comments on the OIG report on
time but has asked that we be allowed to comment until the comment period is
closed to all others.
The GEC noted that the OIG focused
on the groundwater as the greatest threat to our community, but failed to
note that the inappropriate toxaphene analytical method was used for soil
removal actions at the Altama Elementary School and Benedict Road
neighborhood. The GEC has formally requested that all areas tested by the
inappropriate toxaphene analytical method be retested.
