Hudson Dredging Nears End (VIDEO)

Behan Communications Inc. has just released a video in which John Haggard, GE’s Global Remediation Leader, describes the sixth and final year of the Hudson River Dredging Project and next steps for continuing GE’s environmental work on this famed waterway.

Thirteen years ago, when the Environmental Protection Agency selected dredging, many environmental groups praised the decision.

Now, as this historic cleanup draws to a successful conclusion, some say this unprecedented project was not sufficient. They want significantly more dredging – beyond what EPA ordered.

EPA has rejected the request three times. EPA has said no further dredging is necessary because the dredging project is achieving its goals of protecting public health and the environment.

In the words of EPA Region II Administrator Judith Enck, this project has been “enormously successful.”
