The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing to implement remedial actions at the Marathon Battery Co. Site (MBCS) in Cold Spring, New York, pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (CERCLA/SARA). The shortnose sturgeon (Acipenser brevirostrum), a federally-listed endangered species, is known to occur in the Hudson River in the vicinity of the site. Portions of the proposed remedial actions will take place in aquatic habitats of, and associated with, the Hudson River. Accordingly, as part of its efforts to comply with the requirements of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), EPA has prepared a Biological Assessment (BA) of the potential impacts of the proposed remedial actions on the shortnose sturgeon.
