EPA Reaffirms Scope of Dredging Project
June 4, 2012 â€” EPA has completed a five-year review of the Hudson River dredging remedy. This was the second major review of this project in two years â€” and the second time EPA has reaffirmed the scope of the project.
EPAâ€™s review concludes that the dredging project â€świll be protective of human health and the environment upon completionâ€ť and that â€śadditional dredging is not necessary to achieve the ROD objectives.â€ť
Further, EPA concludes â€śthe ecological goals of the ROD will be achieved with time following implementation of the remedy.â€ť And, despite claims to the contrary, EPA determined that â€śno other information has come to light that could call into question the protectivenessâ€ť of the remedy.
