General Electric will cough up more than $250 million to clean the Housatonic River near its plant in Pittsfield, Mass., to settle government charges that the company polluted the river with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and other hazardous substances from the 1930s until 1977. But the company’s not off the hook yet. New York’s attorney general plans to file suit this year against GE for PCB contamination of the Hudson River.
