Former LCP Site & Wetlands

Honeywell has restored the former LCP Chemicals site in the town of Geddes, a former Allied Chemical property that was a source of mercury contamination. During the remediation of the LCP Chemicals site, Honeywell removed 14,500 pounds (more than 7 tons) of mercury from plant property through “soil washing.”

 Under the direction of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the restoration involved a combination of mercury removal from soil on the former plant property; excavation of contaminated sediments in surrounding areas; installation of an on-site groundwater collection system; and the construction of a five-story-deep, underground cutoff wall to prevent any future runoff from the site.
