Glynn County is plagued with four nationally designated and twelve state-designated hazardous waste sites. The Glynn Environmental Coalition has worked to involve the surrounding community and the vast number of visitors in the EPA cleanup decision-making processes since 1990.
Participants who watch this video will learn:
- What is a Superfund Site?
- What are the steps involved with cleaning up a Superfund Site?
- What are examples of Superfund Sites that are located in Georgia?
- What can I do to help?
Goal: The Glynn Environmental Coalition and Georgia Interfaith Power and Light have partnered to host workshops throughout Georgia to introduce individuals to the numerous steps involved in the cleanup process, provide an update on each site in Brunswick, and provide action items for folks to get involved with the process.
Each year the Glynn Environmental Coalition attends the Regional Science and Engineering Fair hosted by Savannah State University and presents the Dr. William T. Lipscomb Scholarship Awards. The awards, sponsored by Pinova and Georgia Power, are presented to the students whose science projects best epitomize concern and hope for a clean environment and healthy economy for coastal Georgia.
Dr. William T. Lipscomb served a professor of Biology teaching Anatomy and Physiology at the Brunswick College (now known as the Coastal College of Georgia) until his retirement and then served as the Glynn Environmental Coalition Secretary until his passing in 2005. Bill was an advocate for the Glynn Environmental Coalition recognizing and supporting our outstanding middle and high school students, teachers, and parents. A science fair award was established in his memory after he passed away. This year, 2019, will be the fourteenth year the award is presented by the Glynn Environmental Coalition.
