New Bedford Harbor Cleanup a Messy Situation

NEW BEDFORD - Next month the cleanup of the New Bedford Harbor Superfund site will move closer to completion, when the bid for filling the first confined aquatic disposal (CAD) cell is awarded. The CAD method is being used to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) plan for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) containment.

However, local activists and members of Hands Across the River Coalition Inc. (HARC) continue to fight for the complete removal of all PCBs from the harbor.

With some 900,000 cubic yards of PCB-contaminated sediment, the New Bedford Harbor site has some of the highest concentrations of PCBs in a Superfund marine environment, and is the state’s highest priority for remediation.
