GEC Receives Inquiries about Properties Near Brunswick Wood Preserving Superfund Site
 

 
 

EPA Availability Session About Work Planned for Site, April 5th, 6-8 PM, Stellar Center, Venture Drive, Brunswick
 

 
 

   Often, the GEC receives calls from people considering a purchase of a home, land, or business in Glynn County.  They want to know if there are old dumps, toxic sites, or other environmental hazards.  Several of these calls have been for areas around the Brunswick Wood Preserving Superfund Site.
 

 
 

Uncontrolled areas of toxic waste, like Brunswick Wood Preserving, are a significant economic stumbling block.  Repeatedly, we have provided information to companies and people doing their due diligence work about a property near or abutting the Site.  Often, it is the same property for which we have received previous inquiries.  After many years, the economic well-being of the area remains stagnant.  Until meaningful progress is made to stop the migration of chemicals to Burnett Creek, under nearby properties through the groundwater, and flooding of adjoining neighborhoods with toxic chemicals, the economic future of the area will remain blighted.

   The EPA recently announced that funding has been obtained to start containment of the Site. You can learn what to expect, as work is begun at the Site, by attending a public meeting from 6-8 PM on Thursday, April 5th, at the Stellar Center, located at exit 38 off I-95 beside the Econo-Lodge.  Your attendance will help us demonstrate that our community wants this site fully remediated.
 

 
In October 2005, several homes in the Floraville Road neighborhood were flooded by contaminated water from the overflowing ponds on the Brunswick Wood Preserving Superfund Site.  The water flowed through other neighborhoods before entering Burnett Creek.
