Statement from NYS DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos on EPA Five-Year Review Report on Hudson River Dredging

"Today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has failed New York by determining that its PCB cleanup of the Upper Hudson River is protective of human health and the environment. We strongly dispute their conclusions and maintain that the significant amount of contamination left in the river threatens both public health and the environment. DEC will continue to fight for the Hudson River and New Yorkers and hold the polluter accountable for its actions. Once again, we are calling on EPA to finish the job and refer back to their original Record of Decision that committed the agency's full responsibility to clean up this toxic legacy and restore the Hudson River."
