EPA says dredging will remove Waukegan Harbor PCBs
CHICAGO — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says dredging of PCB-contaminated sediment from Waukegan Harbor could help get the site removed from a list of Great Lakes toxic hot spots.
Officials said Thursday the EPA hopes to remove about 175,000 cubic yards of sediment. Dredging will begin later this month and last until next summer.
The $48 million project is being carried out under the federal Superfund program as part of the cleanup of the Outboard Marine Corp. site.
