USA: Judge Denies Paper Company’s Request over Fox River Dredging

Judge Denies Paper Company’s Request over Fox River Dredging

A federal judge in Green Bay denied a paper company’s request to delay his earlier order to resume dredging along the Fox River, according to WTAQ.com.

NCR Corporation was ordered last week to immediately restart clean-up efforts after it halted the project last year and filed a lawsuit. The judge laid out a strict schedule for clean-up through November, and said on Friday that dredging should continue by May 17th.

NCR Corporation is one of numerous paper companies that are responsible for the clean-up after dumping PCBs in the river for decades as a result from making carbonless paper.
