Honeywell agrees to spend millions to cap waste beds and more.


Honeywell International reached an agreement Tuesday with the state to cap its waste beds in Camillus and Geddes, making them safe for future recreational use, such as trails, small parks and ballfields.

The agreement calls for Honeywell to spend “millions” to cap waste beds nine through 15, Department of Environmental Conservation Regional Director Ken Lynch said. Exact estimates on how much it will cost have not been calculated, he said.

Honeywell also will spend more than $2 million on other improvement projects, including work to control mudboils, building a boat launch and opening up more areas for fishing.


There is more to this agreement than closing the 670 acre wastebed. Some other items include;
- Allowing fishing in Nine Mile Creek for at least 5 years,
- Pay Camillus up to $50,000 a year for six years for engineering fees,
- Build a boat Launch
- Address the mud boil issue
