ONONDAGAS WANT LAKE COMPLETELY CLEANED UP

A proposed $451 million plan to clean up Onondaga Lake is similar to a plan that failed at a New Jersey hazardous waste site and will lead to a more expensive solution down the road, Onondaga Indian leaders told Honeywell International's directors Monday.

An Onondaga delegation urged the corporation to completely clean up Onondaga Lake, one of the nation's most polluted waterways.

The plan offered by the state Department of Environmental Conservation calls for Honeywell to dredge 2.65 million cubic yards of contaminated sediment from the lake and cover 579 acres of the lake bottom with a cap of sand, gravel and other material.

Honeywell proposed dredging 508,000 cubic yards and capping about 350 acres.
