(Albany, New York) The EPA has made a plan available for public review that outlines how GE
will dismantle and decontaminate its 110 acre sediment processing facility that was built to
support the dredging of the Hudson River PCBs superfund site.

The plan, called the Processing Facility Demobilization and Restoration Plan, is
required by the 2006 legal agreement between General Electric and EPA to conduct the
dredging work.

The plan details how GE will take equipment apart and decontaminate it and how it will
address decontamination of infrastructure such as concrete slabs, roadways, train tracks and
buildings. The plan is located at http://www.epa.gov/hudson

The EPA will take public input on the draft plan until Monday, September 28. Written
comments should be emailed or mailed to Gary Klawinski at the EPA's Hudson River Field
