Hudson River PCB cleanup enters fourth year
What's next for the Hudson River?
PCB cleanup begins for the fourth season in the beginning of May, if the conditions are good.
Environmental Protection Agency officials will outline details on its dredging plans on Monday.
General Electric Co. released poly-chlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, into the river decades ago, and is dredging the river as part of a federal Superfund project. The cleanup is expected to cost more than $1 billion.
The amount of contaminated sediment removed from the river this year could be less than 2012 because crews will be working in separated work sites and will be hauling sediment longer distances.
