That Glynn County site scheduled for cleanup has been on the superfund list since mid-1996. For 75 years before that, it was a big part of the local economy, hosting in turn an oil refinery, oil burning power plants, and producers of chlorine gas, hydrogen gas, and hydrochloric acid. They all left dangerous waste products behind.

Buddy Carter has tried to hold the EPA’s feet to the fire on the cleanup so the site can be developed.
