Cleaning Up the Hudson River
EPA signed a record of decision for the Hudson River requiring General Electric to undertake a major cleanup of portions of the Hudson River contaminated by PCBs. This cleanup is designed to eliminate more than 150,000 pounds of PCBs from the river. PCBs bio-accumulate in fish and may pose cancer threats to people who eat fish caught in the river.
