Mohawks Want GM To Pay For PCB Removal At Former Powertrain Site
Mohawk Indians who live next to an old, polluted General Motors Powertrain plant on the St. Lawrence River near Massena want the cleanup to include removal of a 12-acre toxic landfill.
Residents of the Akwesasne reservation are not satisfied with federal Superfund cleanup plans that would leave the PCB-contaminated landfill in place, capped.
He says the post-bankruptcy GM posted record $7.6 billion profits last year and should be responsible for the full cleanup.
