Mohawks Criticize Cleanup Plan In Massena
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.
