 EPA TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETING ON MAY 12 IN SANDY CREEK, N.C.
 REGARDING THE POTTERS SEPTIC TANK SERVICES PITS SUPERFUND SITE
 ATLANTA, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, May 12, regarding the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study findings that determined the extent of contamination and possible cleanup alternatives for the Potters Septic Tank Services Pits Superfund site in Sandy Creek, N.C.
 The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Hood Creek Community Center on Highway 87 in Sandy Creek. Officials from EPA will discuss results of the investigation of the site, the various alternative methods of cleaning up or treating the contamination, the agency's preferred alternative, an overview of the Superfund program and opportunities for community involvement in EPA's selection of a cleanup method. A 30-day public comment period on the study began on April 30 and will end on May 30. All interested individuals are invited to attend the meeting and provide comments.
 The site is located in a rural section of Brunswick County off Highway 74/76 west of Wilmington. Between 1969 and 1976, the land was used as a disposal area. Contaminants consist of waste petroleum products and septic tank sludges which were placed in shallow, unlined pits or spread directly on the land. The site was placed on EPA's National Priorities List of hazardous waste sites in March 1989.
 Documents concerning the site are available for public review at the Columbus County Library, East Columbus Branch, Highway 87, Reigelwood, N.C.
