EPA TO HOLD PRESS BRIEFING ON MARCH 29 REGARDING INVESTIGATION OF GROUNDWATER CONTAMINATION IN COLUMBIA, S.C.

 ATLANTA, March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold a press briefing on March 29 at 3 p.m. at 117 Burmaster St. in Columbia, S.C., to provide information concerning a field investigation being conducted in the Royal Pines Subdivision.
 During the week of March 29 to April 2, EPA, in cooperation with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC), will collect environmental samples to determine the source of groundwater contamination which has affected several private wells in the area. Low levels of volatile organic compounds have been detected in several area wells.
 EPA personnel, EPA's field investigation team and SCDHEC personnel will collect approximately 50 environmental samples in and around the subdivision and at nearby properties. The samples, which will be taken from the groundwater, surface soil and subsurface soil, will be analyzed for a wide range of organic and inorganic contaminants.
 The results of the investigation will be explained to the community during a public availability session to be held by EPA in the fall. The public availability session will be an opportunity for interested citizens to ask questions, express concerns and obtain more information about EPA's investigation. EPA will announce the date and location of the public availability session as soon as they are determined.
