A.G. SCHNEIDERMAN STATEMENT ON EPA'S DECISION ON UPPER HUDSON RIVER DREDGING

New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman released the following statement in response to EPA's decision to delay issuing a certificate of completion for General Electric's dredging of PCBs from the Hudson River:

'The Hudson River is the backbone of New York's economy and a crown jewel of our environment,' said Attorney General Schneiderman. 'As any Hudson Valley resident knows, the clean-up job is still not done. My office will continue to monitor the situation, and we stand ready to take legal action to ensure the clean-up is done fully and done right.'

For decades, the General Electric manufacturing facilities in Hudson Falls and Fort Edward dumped more than one million pounds of hazardous PCBs directly into the Hudson River. The contamination has effected the health and economy of communities along the Hudson River ever since, including the destruction of a once-thriving $40 million commercial fishery. Last month, Attorney General Schneiderman and Governor Cuomo made clear that they would sue if the EPA deemed the clean-up complete.
