This article focuses on the resurgence of the Onondaga Lake in New York. The lake was once a renowned fishery and tourist destination, which became a dumping ground. The lake was once polluted. In 2005, the lake was undergoing a remedial work. Construction ot a new groundwater treatment plant was nearly complete. A cleanup project was established.
