The U.S. En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency will hold a public work­shop 7 p.m. Nov. 30 to dis­cuss the sta­tus of the sec­ond five-year re­view for the Hud­son River PCBs Su­per­fund site.

The work­shop — to be held at the Al­bany Mar­riott, 189 Wolf Road — will be the third of sev­eral work­shops in­tended to in­volve the public dur­ing the fiveyear re­view process for the site.

The pur­pose of the five-year re­view is to eval­u­ate whether the Hud­son River cleanup is work­ing as in­tended. The first five-year re­view for the Hud­son River PCBs Su­per­fund site was com­pleted in 2012.

The Nov. 30 work­shop will in­clude an overview of the fiveyear re­view process and a sum­mary of the top­ics that have been dis­cussed to date dur­ing the on­go­ing monthly meet­ings of the Five-Year Re­view Team, which in­cludes rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the state De­part­ment of En­vi­ron­men­tal Con­ser­va­tion, state De­part­ment of Health, state Canal Corp, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser­vice, U.S. Na­tional Park Ser­vice and Na­tional Oceanic and At­mo­spheric Ad­min­is­tra­tion, and the site’s Com­mu­nity Ad­vi­sory Group.
