EPA Talks River Cleanup Options
Environmentalists, sportsmen, and concerned residents attended a mini-workshop on the history of the Housatonic River, the health effects of the polychlorinated biphynels, PCBs, dumped into the river for decades by GE, and alternatives for cleanup.

The PCBs are a real risk to human health and a harm to animals in the river and in flood plains which is why a lot of planning needs to go into how to proceed with the clean up for which GE is footing the bill.

Options being considered included monitored natural recovery, in-situ capping, and environmental dredging.

Verona New Jersey to go Phosphate-Free? - Phosphates enter waterways from human and animal waste, phosphorus rich bedrock, laundry, cleaning, industrial effluents, and fertilizer runoff. These phosphates become detrimental when they over fertilize aquatic plants and cause stepped up eutrophication. If too much phosphate is present in the water the algae and weeds will grow rapidly, may choke the waterway, and use up large amounts of precious oxygen (in the absence of photosynthesis and as the algae and plants die and are consumed by aerobic bacteria.) The result may be the death of many fish and aquatic organisms.
