Coal Ash Landfills

Recent reports indicate that the Lockwood ash landfill in Dresden has had exceedances for Aluminum, Arsenic, Boron, Cadmium, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Mercury, Selenium, and Zinc. The landfill is NOT monitoring for all of the EPA mandated coal ash ground water contaminants.

Seneca Lake Guardian is a party to lawsuits to shut down coal ash landfills near Seneca and Cayuga lakes. We will begin a project this Spring to do stream testing around the coal ash landfills at Keuka Outlet/Dresden (Lockwood) and Milliken Creek/Lansing (Cayuga Power) for the EPA required analytes that are not routinely tested for and reported.
