DHEC will host a community meeting on Thursday, March 21, 2013, from 6:00 8:00 p.m., at EdVenture Children's Museum located at 211 Gervais Street, Columbia, SC 29201. The purpose of the meeting is to provide information on the tar-like material (TLM) found in the sediments and soils of the Congaree River between the Gervais and Blossom Street bridges. Sampling data and cleanup alternatives evaluated by DHEC will be discussed.
