FORT EDWARD (AP) -- Crews are back dredging the upper Hudson River after high water forced a temporary suspension last week.
 
General Electric Co. says work on the multi-year Superfund project resumed Monday on two areas north of Albany contaminated by PCBs. Heavy rains and high water forced crews off the river late Wednesday.

GE released poly-chlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, into the river decades ago.
