In 2009, GE started to remediate the more than 1.3 million pounds of PCBs
it released into the Hudson River. As the PCB cleanup moves downriver, it
is important for elected officials and interested citizens in the
Mid-Hudson region to be fully informed about the cleanup to date, to
understand how it impacts our communities and to be engaged in the process
moving forward. Join Clearwater, NRDC, Riverkeeper, and Scenic Hudson for
an update on the Hudson River General Electric PCB cleanup for Mid-Hudson
