The companies

Many companies are depolluting the lake. Honeywell is the leading company, after all, they conjoined companies with Allied Corporation which was a leading factor in the pollution the lake. As of now, they are dredging the lake at the source of pollution & restoring marshlands for the watershed.

Pollution: how it happened

In the 1880 the Solvay process started to make soda ash on the western side of Onondaga lake. For the next 100 years the lake was polluted. In the early 1900 the Solvay process had burried the salt mashes under industrial waste. A combination of over fishing , pollution from waste byproduct & habitat destruction greatly harmed the environment. Many animals, plants & resources were damaged or killed because of this.
