BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - A public comment session has been scheduled for a federal plan to clean a contaminated marshland near Brunswick.

The Florida Times-Union reports (https://bit.ly/1FfVYVW ) the EPA plan for the former LCP Chemicals site includes dredging a ditch and removing contaminated soil, covering 11 acres of marshland with sand and more at an estimated cost of $28.6 million. The public comment session is set for Dec. 4. at the Brunswick-Glynn County Library.

Honeywell owns the land LCP Chemicals once occupied and project manager John Morris says the goal of the proposed clean up balances long-term benefits with short-term damage to the marsh.

Executive Director of the Glynn Environmental Coalition Daniel Parshley says the proposal is inadequate and won’t make local seafood safe to eat or improve the health of marine wildlife.
