Honeywell, under the supervision of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the U.S. Environmental Agency, has finished the dredging of Onondaga Lake, a year ahead of schedule.
During the project, approx 2.2 million cubic yards of material was removed from the bottom of the lake using hydraulic dredges that reduced truck traffic, emissions, and noise. The restoration of Geddes Brook was completed in 2011 and Nine Mile Creek in October 2014.
Material that was removed from Onondaga Lake was pumped to a consolidation area at former industrial property off of Airport Road for drying and safe isolation long term.
