ALBANY — General Electric Co. and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will investigate the Hudson River PCBs Superfund site including Columbia and Greene counties to determine the next steps for addressing river contamination under a legal agreement between GE and the EPA.

Under the agreement, GE will develop a plan for extensive water, sediment and fish sampling between the Troy Dam to the north and New York Harbor to the south. Polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, will be a focus of the investigation, but other contaminants will also be evaluated.
