EPA:

“The Hudson River PCB Superfund dredging project has been a success... This project is the most extensive dredging project undertaken in the nation, and its success is a historic achievement for the recovery of the Hudson River. It was also a success for the local economy — providing about 500 jobs at its peak.”

EPA Report Says Dredging is Working

June 1, 2017 — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued its Five Year Review report that concludes the Hudson River dredging project significantly reduced PCB levels and is achieving the environmental improvements that EPA envisioned. EPA said the dredging remedy is functioning as intended and will be protective of human health and the environment. No additional dredging in the Upper or Lower Hudson is recommended.

GE is continuing to support the ongoing assessment of environmental conditions in the river and working closely with EPA, New York State, local communities and others committed to the goal of a cleaner Hudson.
