Hudson River Dredging Design Report Available

EPA has reached another milestone in the cleanup of the Hudson River PCBs site with the receipt of the Intermediate Design Report from the General Electric Company (GE) for Phase 2 of the cleanup. EPA has initiated a thorough review of the document.

Following the completion of Phase 1 dredging and a subsequent peer review, EPA will notify GE of its decision regarding changes to the performance standards or scope of Phase 2. GE will then notify EPA as to whether GE will implement Phase 2 pursuant to the Consent Decree.

At this point, the Phase 2 Design plans may be modified, particularly if there are changes to the performance standards or the scope of Phase 2. The Intermediate Design Report for Phase 2 is available on-line at the project Web site at

Hard copies of the Intermediate Design Report, which include the tables and appendices, are available at information repositories in Glens Falls, Fort Edward (EPA Hudson River Field Office), Ballston Spa, Albany, Poughkeepsie, New York City (EPA Region 2 offices), and Edgewater, New Jersey.
