Former General Motors auto plant in Sleepy Hollow

About 4,400 cubic yards of metals-contaminated soil and sediment are being removed from 0.8 acres of the Hudson River near a stormwater outfall area at the site of a former General Motors plant in Sleepy Hollow. Water will be treated and discharged into the river and the dredged area will be backfilled. Contaminants include lead, chromium, copper, zinc, mercury, trichloroethane, petroleum products, methane and mercury. Possible future uses of the 99-acre site are under discussion.
