Join Riverkeeper, Scenic Hudson, and the Southern Saratoga Chamber of Commerce for an overview of EPA’s results from their 5-year review of the PCB cleanup and learn how you can stand up for a healthy Hudson River.

Did you know that the Hudson River is the nation’s largest Superfund site, running for almost 200 miles from Hudson Falls, NY to NYC, because of General Electric? GE dumped over a million pounds of toxic PCBs into the River between 1947 and 1977. Now, EPA and GE are trying to walk away from their PCB cleanup effort before the job is done.

Comments to EPA on the future of the Hudson River cleanup are due on September 1st.

Visit www.scenichudson.org/pcbs and riverkeeper.org/pcbs for more information about the health of the Hudson.
