DEC Challenges EPA on Hudson River PCB Clean-Up
“Sierra Club commends Governor Cuomo and DEC Commissioner Seggos for scrutinizing EPA and GE’s alleged cleanup of the Hudson River,” said Aaron Mair, President of the Sierra Club. “By allowing so much PCB contamination to remain in the River, the EPA has turned its back on the health of thousands of New Yorkers, many of whom represent immigrant, low income and minority communities who regularly eat the fish they catch for sustenance. Committing to a full clean up of the Hudson River is the kind of justice these communities deserve. " Read the full press release here and to read the DEC letter to the EPA, click here.
