PCB REMEDIAL DREDGING: Phase 1 results and

relevance to nY/NJ Harbor estuary

carp contamination assessment reduction project
Key findings
  • The Upper Hudson is the dominant source of PCBs to the lower estuary
  • Upper Hudson PCBs are dispersed throughout the Harbor Estuary
  • If PCB loadings continue at current levels, much of the Harbor’s surficial sediments will remain HARS-unsuitable for decades
Carp (Contamination Assessment & Reduction project
