Picture of the Day: Hudson River Dredging Operations

Around-the-clock dredging operations on the Hudson River commenced recently, and will continue through November in a 14-mile section of the Upper Hudson between Schuylerville and Stillwater, Saratoga County.

Dredging began near Fort Edward, 40 miles north of Albany, in 2009, and GE’s contractors thus far have removed 70 percent of the total that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency targeted for removal. Once this season’s work is completed, dredging will continue for one more season in 2015.

GE’s goal is to conduct the project as safely and efficiently as possible, and with minimum impact on the river and local communities. The project is one of the largest environmental cleanups in U.S. history. It poses unprecedented engineering and logistical challenges every day.
