EPA to Review $43M Dredging Plan for Pompton Lake

Details of a $43 million plan to remove 10,600 dump trucks’ worth of contaminated sediment from the bottom of Pompton Lake have been submitted to the federal Environmental Protection Agency.

Chemours, a DuPont spinoff that is responsible for cleaning up old DuPont sites across the country, expects work on the project to start next June.
