ALBANY, N.Y. – Dredging on the Upper Hudson River is expected to resume on Wednesday.
The work on Wednesday will be the start of the fifth season of an environmental dredging project which is funded by General Electric.
GE agreed in 2009 to remove more than 2.5 million cubic yards of sediment contaminated with PCB’s, a cancer causing chemical.
The project focuses on a 30 mile stretch of river north of Albany. It is expected to be completed next year.
