Albany, New York -- The EPA has made a plan available for public review that outlines how GE will dismantle and decontaminate its 110 acre sediment processing facility that was built to support the dredging of the Hudson River PCBs superfund site.
The plan, called the Processing Facility Demobilization and Restoration Plan, is required by the 2006 legal agreement between General Electric and EPA to conduct the dredging work.
The plan details how GE will take equipment apart and decontaminate it and how it will address decontamination of infrastructure such as concrete slabs, roadways, train tracks and buildings. The plan is located at http://www.epa.gov/hudson
The EPA will take public input on the draft plan until Monday, September 28. Written comments should be emailed or mailed to Gary Klawinski at the EPA’s Hudson River Field Office:
