EPA to unveil ‘Rest of River’ plan June 18

From Wikipedia: The Igor I. Sikorsky Memorial Bridge (also known as the Sikorsky Memorial Bridge, and the Housatonic River Bridge) carries the limited-access Connecticut Route 15 over the Housatonic River, between Stratford and Milford, Connecticut. The bridge was first referred to as the Sikorsky Bridge because Sikorsky Aircraft is headquartered just north of the bridge. The 2006 replacement span was dedicated as the Igor I. Sikorsky Memorial Bridge. The bridge's completion marked the completion of the Merritt Parkway and the starting point for construction of the adjoining Wilbur Cross Parkway, September 2, 1940.

After nearly three years of study and delays, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will lift the curtain on its “Rest of River” proposal for a cleanup of PCBs on a heavily contaminated, 10-mile stretch of the Housatonic River from Fred Garner Park in Pittsfield into Lenox and points south.

The overall plan addresses the river’s sediment and floodplain contamination extending into Connecticut, said agency regional spokesman Jim Murphy.
