Fort Edward, NY, Aug 20, 2009 — Three months after the Environmental Protection Agency began dredging toxic PCBs from the Hudson River, the project faces fresh criticism. The cleanup of industrial chemicals dumped in the river by General Electric is one of the largest and most complex environmental efforts ever undertaken in the U.S.
But many locals say too much pollution from the project is leaking back into the water and the air. They also worry that the dredging has damaged archeological sites along the river. Brian Mann reports from Fort Edward.
