Terry Creek Superfund Site

Technical Assistance Update July 2008

By Dr. R. Kevin Pegg
 

 

Activity at this site is confined to paperwork regarding changes to the toxaphene analytical method. There has been considerable debate over the last decade and a half over how the EPA monitors toxaphene in Glynn County, Georgia.  EPA Region 4 used a method specific to Brunswick that was found to underestimate toxaphene and toxaphene breakdown products.  A new universal method is being developed, perhaps with greater scientific integrity than has been seen in the past.
