The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold the first of several workshops with the Hudson River PCBs Site Community Advisory Group on Thursday, May 5, 2016, to discuss the second five-year review for the Hudson River PCBs Superfund site.
The purpose of the five-year review is to ensure that the Hudson River cleanup is working as intended and will be protective of public health and the environment.
The first five-year review for the Hudson River PCBs Superfund site was completed in 2012.
This workshop, set to take place in Saratoga Springs, will include an overview of the regulations that guide the review, the five-year review process and the anticipated scope and schedule for the review. The second five-year review will be completed by April 23, 2017.
The Hudson River Community Advisory Group meetings are open to the public.
EPA expects to hold several more workshops with the Hudson River Community Advisory Group as the five-year review process proceeds.
