EPA selected dredging as its preferred remedy for PCBs in sediments in the Upper Hudson River in 2002, after a 12-year reassessment of its 1984 decision not to dredge.
GE is now performing the project, with the approval and oversight of EPA. Implementation of the project is described in a comprehensive agreement signed by GE and EPA, which was approved by U.S. District Court Judge David Hurd last year. Under two prior agreements with EPA, GE designed the first phase of the dredging project, developed a community health and safety plan, collected 50,000 river sediment samples, mapped river habitat, and evaluated cultural resources.
