GE exceeds the EPA's year-end production goal for PCB dredging the close of the second season of dredging the Hudson River for PCBs, General Electric Co. has exceeded it's year-end production goal set by the Environmental Protection Agency.  Reporting the removal of more than 363,000 cubic yards of sediment, General Electric has exceeded the Superfund project's year-end goal of 350,000 cubic yards.
