Millions have been spent to clean up PCBs that were dumped by General Electric into the Hudson River, a practice that started more than 70 years ago and lasted for decades. The practice turned the Hudson River into a polluted Superfund site for 200 miles from its northern reaches to New York Harbor. GE is required to clean up the most heavily polluted areas in the upper river, but the company is threatening to end its high-tech dredging operation in 2015, after completing only 65 percent of the clean-up. Daniel Raichel, of the Natural Resource Defense Council and Althea Mullarkey, with Scenic Hudson will discuss the issue. Call (518) 828-0290 to go on air during the show, or send your comments or questions via email to info@wgxc.org. Or take three minutes and record a question or comment ahead of time at (518) 291-WGXC (9492). Hosted by Cecilia Tkaczyk.
