VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES WITH THE GEC
 

 
The GEC relies on its members to do much of our work.  Here are some opportunities to help: 
 
 

  

 1- We need historical research done on the Arco community.   Specifically, Glynn County land records, tax maps, and photos of the Atlantic Richfield Company or ARCO property (now the LCP Chemicals Superfund Site) from its beginning of operations that show the boundaries of the property.

     The EPA has plans to propose a legal decision about clean-up of the "Upland" portion of the Superfund Site in 2007.  Currently, only a small part of the historical area of ARCO operations has been investigated and slated for clean-up.  This information will help the GEC assure that all contaminated areas are identified, investigated, and made part of the cleanup.

 

 

 
The LCP Chemicals Superfund Site has been the location of a refinery, paint manufacturing, electrical generating, and most recently a Chloro-Alkali chemical manufacturing plant.  During the long history of operations, the plant extended far beyond the current boundaries of the Superfund Site.  Under Superfund law, the entire area of operations must be identified to assure all toxic waste is cleaned up.  To date, former areas of operation that extended past where Habersham Street is located today have not been included in what is now called the LCP Chemicals Superfund Site.
 

2- “Buy Dry Land” Photographer

We need you to take before and after pictures of homes built in wetlands which flood after rain events.  We know where they are and could use your help with areas near you.

 3- Fishing Areas Outreach: Visiting fishing areas/boat ramps and posting seafood consumption advisory signs and providing informational flyers to fishermen.  Many fishing areas are spread over Glynn County and there is one near you. 

 4- Newsletter mailings:  We can always use help every other month when we get ready to send out this newsletter.  It’s fun sitting around the table at our office folding, stuffing and taping the newsletters.

 5- Archivist:  The GEC keeps a scrapbook of newspaper articles about us.  We need someone who can keep that up-to-date by coming in from time to time to clip the articles, make copies of them, and put them into the book.

 6- Be an officer or Board member
