Cleanup on the way for lake in Passaic County
DuPont officials announced Wednesday that sediment will be removed from Pompton Lake after it was contaminated by chemical runoff from an old DuPont munitions plant nearby.
DuPont's plan is to clean up about 26 acres of the lake area, but some people News 12 New Jersey talked to say that it's not nearly enough.
Lisa Riggiola organized the group "Citizens for a Clean Pompton Lakes" and was instrumental in getting signs posted warning people not to eat fish from the lake. She believes the entire lake should be cleaned up, not just a small portion.
The group insists that giving the area Superfund status would speed clean up and widen its scope, but so far that has not happened.
