Coal Ash Landfills

The Greenidge Facility has a toxic legacy from its predecessor, which was a coal fired power plant. Cleaning up and closing the coal ash landfill and coal ash pond is vital to the health of Seneca Lake and the health of those who drink, cook with, bather, or recreate in Seneca Lake waters. Seneca Lake Guardian is working with other groups to ensure that this is cleaned up and closed safely.
