Meetings to Resolve Environmental/Dredging Issues

Thursday, March 02, 2000
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has asked the USACE and the EPA to convene a series of meetings to clarify the facts underlying a current dispute threatening both the environmental remediataion of a former ocean disposal site and the continued dredging of vital maritime ports in New York and New Jersey. "The Historic Area Remediation Site (HARS), the former 'mud dump' site six miles offshore in the Atlantic Ocean, must be sealed with clean fill to prevent material from escaping into the ocean," said Lillian Borrone, director of port commerce for the port authority. "And, we must ensure a disposal site is available for clean sediment dredged from our marine terminals and shipping channels, in order to keep them open to cargo shipping and preserve hundreds of thousands of jobs in our region."
