Mohawk Environmental Director Ken Jock says the recommended plan to clean up toxic waste that was discharged into the Grasse River from Alcoa's Massena plant decades ago is a long awaited step that doesn't go far enough.
It would also allow more than 300 acres of contaminated sediment to be covered with both a thick armored rock cap and clean sand and gravel.
But the St. Regis Mohawk tribe feels capping isn't a permanent remedy.
