The next meeting of the Hudson River PCBs Site Community c (CAG) will take place on Thursday, April 23, 2015 at the Saratoga Town Hall (12 Spring Street, Schuylerville, NY, 12871).
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.
