USA: Meeting on Housatonic River PCB Issue Set for Next Week

The public forum regarding the Housatonic River “Rest of River” clean-up effort will take place Wednesday, September 10, 2014, at the Berkshire Scenic Railway Station, 10 Willow Creek Road, Lenox, MA, at 6:30 PM.

The debate over clean-up of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the Housatonic River has reached an important stage and it is critical that the Board of Selectmen hears public opinion.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a “Proposed Remedial Action” plan which would require General Electric (GE) to meet certain performance standards for clean-up. EPA has extended the deadline for public comment (originally August 8) to October 1.

The purpose of the forum is for residents to voice their concerns on how the proposed plan impacts the community, especially those citizens in close proximity to the river. The majority of the time will be dedicated to public comment.
