DHEC to unveil cleanup plan for AVX contamination

Representatives with the Department of Health and Environmental Control will unveil a proposed plan for AVX to go forward with cleaning up one of its former Myrtle Beach facilities Tuesday evening.

"We're not going to make any decisions. We'll be presenting and addressing any questions that residents have," Adam Myrick with DHEC said.

The company, that makes parts for electronics equipment, contaminated the groundwater of a Myrtle Beach neighborhood with a degreaser surrounding its facility on 17th Avenue South.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Lakewood Elementary School.
