How the GEC Helps Our Community

Community Organizing Community organizing and education led to the signs being reposted at the Brunswick Wood Preserving Superfund Site, and fences repaired to keep children and all terrain vehicles out.  Recently, monitoring wells were installed between the Site and residential wells.
Technical Assistance The GEC provides technical assistance to those living around our four Superfund Sites as we recover from our toxic legacy.

Public Hearings

The GEC helps our community by requesting public hearing for projects like the Live Oak Power Plant, where  many of the people living close by are worried that large water withdrawals from the Miocene aquifer by the power plant could make more wells go dry. 

Recent Hearings on Superfund sites

Our 12 year struggle for clean healthy air resulted in public hearings on air permits being issued in our community.

Safe and Healthy Schools
  The GEC worked to implement an Integrated Pest Management program in Glynn County Schools.  We also helped arrange and fund testing of certain school properties for contamination, resulting in eventual clean-up of Goodyear Elementary School.  We are currently working to have Altama Elementary School re-tested for toxaphene degradation products and other chemicals.
