Fact Sheet: Upper Hudson Freshwater Mussel Restoration Planning Pilot Study

Date Posted: September 10, 2013

Past and continuing discharges of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) have contaminated Hudson River natural resources. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is continuing with cleanup activities, federal and state trustee agencies – National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. Department of the Interior, and New York State (the Trustees) – are assessing how releases of PCBs from the General Electric Company (GE) plants at Fort Edward and Hudson Falls, New York may have harmed the Hudson River’s natural resources.
