EPA TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETING IN CLEMSON, S.C., REGARDING THE SANGAMO- WESTON/TWELVE MILE CREEK/LAKE HARTWELL PCB CONTAMINATION SUPERFUND SITE
 ATLANTA, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, March 3, in Clemson, S.C., to discuss the status of the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) for Operable Unit Two (OU2) of the Sangamo-Weston/Twelve Mile Creek/Lake Hartwell Superfund site in Pickens County, S.C.
 The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Ramada Inn, U.S. 76 and Highway 123 in Clemson, S.C. EPA officials will discuss the results of the Phase I Sediment Investigation and present plans for an upcoming Phase II Sediment investigation and a biological investigation that will be conducted in the spring 1992.
 Copies of the Technical Memorandum, which summarizes the results of the Phase I Sediment Investigation, and the Final Biological Investigation Work Plan are available for public review at the Village Library, Pickens, S.C.; the Pickens County Library, Easley Branch, Easley, S.C.; the R.M. Copper Library, Clemson University, Clemson, S.C.; and the Hart County Library, Hartwell, Ga.
 The Sangamo site was proposed for inclusion on EPA's National Priorities List (NPL) of hazardous waste sites in June 1988, and was listed in February 1990. Sangamo Weston, Inc. manufactured electric capacitors using polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) for a non-conducting fluid from 1955 to 1976. Solid wastes, sludges and liquid wastes were stored or disposed of in piles, landfills and impoundments. PCBs have been found in the runoff leaving the plant and in downstream tributaries of Twelve-Mile Creek. A fish consumption advisory was issued for Lake Hartwell and Twelve-Mile Creek in August 1976 and remains in effect.
 EPA divided the site into separate segments, or Operable Units (OUs). OU1 includes the Sangamo Plant and six satellite disposal areas in Pickens County. OU2 consists of the Twelve Mile Creek watershed, including portions of Lake Hartwell and several area streams.
 In late 1989, results of the RI/FS for OU1 were released. After receiving public comments, EPA signed a Record of Decision in 1990, selecting thermal separation/desorption as the OU1 remedy. Schlumberger Industries, Inc. has indicated that they are willing to implement the selected remedy. Initial phases of the design work are expected to begin this summer. All design and cleanup work will be performed under EPA oversight and supervision.
