(NEWS10) – Cleanup plans for the Housatonic River are now in the works, and General Electric will be footing the bill.
The Environmental Protection Agency has issued its final plan for the “rest of river” project in western Massachusetts and Connecticut.
The plan requires GE to address the PCB contamination in river sediment, banks, and floodplain soil.
The cost of the cleanup is an estimated $613 million.
The project is expected to take about two years to design, and 13 years to complete.
