Hudson River PCB dredging taking longer than forecast (PHOTOS)

(ALBANY, N.Y.) — General Electric Co.’s Hudson River PCB dredging project is taking longer than expected, and more care must be taken to solve the resuspension issued, the Times-Union newspaper reported. Dredges at Fort Edward have finished for the season at the nation’s largest river pollution dredging site and largest Superfund site. Because the PCB amount turned out to be larger than estimated, the mariners finished dredging only 10 of the 18 zones around Roger Island this year.
