Cargill, Inc. Proposal to Drill Shaft #4
In 2016, Cargill, Inc. announced plans to drill a new shaft, Shaft #4, on the Cayuga Lake shoreline north of their present salt mine operations in Lansing. DEC granted a negative declaration for Cargill’s activities, although independent scientific review clearly shows this was a mistake. CLEAN (Cayuga Lake Environmental Action Now) is working to show the DEC and all citizens at the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) should be required prior to the approval of the Shaft #4 permit. Numerous documents submitted to the DEC have laid out the concerning technical issues with Cargill’s Shaft #4 Project.
