A Cleanup That Remains Stalled

July 23, 2010 - For over 30 years, Edgewater has worked hard to replace its image as a home of polluted factory sites with one of luxury homes, upscale shops and a beautiful walkway along the Hudson River.

But beneath certain areas like the City Place Promenade on River Road, lie contaminates and pollutants that have never been completely removed.

Although the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been monitoring the area known as the Quanta Resources Superfund property since 1986, it has not removed contaminants from the area or required the owners to do so since it classified the area as a Superfund site in 2002.
