Comprehensive Study of Hudson Shoreline Areas

GE announced recently that it has reached an agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to perform a comprehensive assessment of the Hudson River shoreline from Fort Edward to Troy, New York.

GE welcomes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announcement of our agreement on a comprehensive study of the shoreline areas of the upper Hudson River, building on the work we have been doing in the river and along the shorelines for many years. This agreement was cooperative and demonstrates GE’s continued commitment to meet its environmental obligations,” said Ann R. Klee, GE’s vice president of Global Operations, Environment Health and Safety.

GE takes great pride in what has been accomplished thus far on an extraordinary series of environmental cleanup projects conducted on and near the Hudson River,” Klee said. “The agreement announced today builds on the significant sampling and interim remedial work GE already has completed in the floodplain. As the environmental dredging project draws to an expected close in 2015, GE’s work on the Hudson River will continue.”

To date, GE has sampled more than 3,200 locations along the floodplain. Under the new agreement, GE will continue extensive sampling along 80 miles of Hudson shoreline. Under EPA supervision, GE also will perform human health and ecological risk assessments. Based on the results of these evaluations, EPA will develop and issue a cleanup plan (in a Record of Decision) for the entire floodplain area.
