Dredging crews back on Hudson River

FORT EDWARD, N.Y. (AP) -- Crews are back dredging the upper Hudson River after high water forced a temporary suspension last week.

General Electric Co. says work on the multi-year Superfund project resumed Monday on two areas north of Albany contaminated by PCBs. Heavy rains and high water forced crews off the river late Wednesday.

Crews began a fourth season of the project April 29. They are more than halfway done with the goal of removing 2.65 million cubic yards of contaminated sediment from a 40-mile stretch of the upper Hudson.

GE released poly-chlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, into the river decades ago.
