EPA Regional Superfund Director Walter Mugdan:

"We think the project was a success. There is no reason to question the effectiveness of the cleanup. None of the criteria needed for the EPA to require additional dredging have been triggered."

Completed Dredging Activities

Dredging activities in the Hudson were completed in 2015. GE addressed 100 percent of the PCBs targeted by EPA. More than 300,000 pounds of PCBs were removed from the river ‚ÄĒ twice as much as had been anticipated. EPA says the volume of PCBs to which fish are exposed has been "significantly and effectively reduced" and the project "will continue to help restore the environmental health of the Hudson."
