GE to Begin Hudson River Dredging in Early May

General Electric is working aggressively to refine plans for the sixth and final season of the Hudson River dredging program, which will be performed later this year, from May through November.

When dredging is completed this year, GE will have removed 100 percent of the PCBs targeted by EPA for removal — more than 2.65 million cubic yards of sediment from a 40-mile stretch of river between Fort Edward and Troy, N.Y.

GE’s work on the Hudson will continue long after dredging is completed, with a focus on floodplains along the river’s shorelines, construction of habitat in areas that were dredged, continued monitoring of river conditions, continuing cleanup of GE’s plant sites, and the decommissioning of support facilities used during dredging.

The Hudson dredging project is being undertaken by GE under an agreement with the EPA, which selected dredging as the remedial strategy to address PCBs in sediments in the river, and determined the size and scope of the project, after thoroughly evaluating a full range of options including more dredging.
