Soil, Air, and Water Contamination
We are currently working on several issues regarding contamination in Brunswick and Glynn County. Alongside our partners, we are monitoring Superfund site cleanups (i.e. Terry Creek, Hercules, LCP) and have submitted comments on cleanup plans. We are committed to holding the responsible parties accountable for remedying the contamination’s impacts.
Contamination in our community is also found at Brownfields, which are former industrial or commercial sites where redevelopment is inhibited by either real or perceived contamination. OHM has partnered with the City of Brunswick, Glynn County, UGA Marine Extension, and The Georgia Conservancy to apply for funding from the Environmental Protection Agency to address brownfield sites. The grant is intended to initiate redevelopment for some of the County’s and City’s most promising brownfield sites.
