Honeywell Pollutes Indiana

May 22, 2017

The Gary Airport is suing Honeywell for pollution it left in the 1970s and 1980s. According to the lawsuit, Honeywell dumped large amounts of toxic waste at a site right next to the airport, and that waste is now leaching into groundwater and the Grand Calumet River.

Honeywell claims they were already cleaning the site up back in the 1990s and early 2000s. But if hazardous waste is leaking out again, how good a job could they have done cleaning it up?

Like the Calumet River, Honeywell’s excuses stink.
