Eversource continues its voluntary reduction of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB). We are in the process of replacing PCB-contaminated transformers and other oil-filled equipment in locations where PCB levels pose an unacceptable risk.
We have already removed or replaced PCB transformers in or near schools, hospitals, multi-family homes, apartment buildings and other high-occupancy buildings and have committed to systematically removing PCB-containing equipment on a structured schedule over time.
More information about Eversource's approval through the Utility Solid Waste Activities Group (USWAG) to dispose of PCB remediation waste in appropriate landfills is available on the USWAG website.
If you have questions related to PCB disposal, please contact Kenneth Hynes in Eversource's Environmental Affairs department on the PCB Information Line at 860-496-3213.
