New Bedford Harbor Superfund Site

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and other hazardous materials were released into New Bedford Harbor over a period of 40 years as a result of electrical component manufacturing. Restoration activities are designed to restore natural resources that were lost, injured, or destroyed by the releases. Priorities for restoration include salt marshes and other wetlands, recreational areas, water-column quality, living marine resources, habitats, shellfish and endangered species. Collectively, these actions will help restore an ecosystem severely degraded by long-term, broad-scale contaminant releases, industrial development and shoreline modification.
