Comprehensive Monitoring Program Conducted During Dredging
During the PCB cleanup, GE conducts a comprehensive monitoring program, developed by GE in cooperation with EPA, local elected officials and emergency response organizations.
GE’s goal is to implement the project safely, efficiently and in compliance with EPA requirements.
During dredging, the program monitors:
- the resuspension of PCBs in the water during dredging (resuspension)
- the level of PCBs left on the river bottom after dredging (residuals)
- the rate at which dredging is conducted (productivity)
- air quality
- river navigation
All of the data collected during performance of dredging activities is submitted to the EPA and is available for review by the public. Please visit www.hudsondredgingdata.com for more information.
