State Aide’s Opinion

Last November Henry L. Diamond, New York State’s Commissioner of Environmental Conservation, released a report of preliminary studies, paid for by International Paper, that he said indicated “that the ecology of the lake could be adversely affected by a large‐scale sludge removal operation.”

Technicians on the Vermont side, however, are firmly convinced that removal is necessary.

Fred I. Parker, that state’s Deputy Attorney General, said: “Any danger in removing the sludge is a lot less than the danger of leaving it there. ”   Now there are oxygen levels of zero in the water in some places. How much worse can you get?

Mr. Parker, last December, carried Vermont’s case to the United States Supreme Court, charging in a brief that the sludge was “depriving the citizens of the State of Vermont of their rights to swim, fish, boat, travel Upon and enjoy the waters of Lake Champlain free from stench and filth.”

Down on Lake Champlain at the edge of town, Bill Rader, who runs the small ferry across to Vermont, said the water was now clear enough at times to let him see the propellor of his boat, the Ethan Allen.

“Before, the water was a brown liquid that smelled strictly like rotten eggs,” he said as the boat chugged across the lake. “Tourists used to ride across holding their noses and saying ‘never again!’ “

On the surface the situation here seems like a rare success story in pollution abatement. But just below the surface of Lake Cham plain is a 1,500‐acre mound of sludge, 20 feet thick in some places, left over from the paper mill as well as earlier and simpler industries dating back 200 years.

Today, although the black ooze has stopped coming from the mill, gas bubbles still rise from the decom posing sludge and bits of decaying material occasionally come to the surface.

Sludge Still a Problem

Some leading residents here and the State of Ver mont are adamant that the sludge is a continuing pol lution threat and must be re moved now.

International Paper counters by saying that it should not be held responsible for the sludge because some of it was deposited by others and in any case all of it was dumped in the lake when such disposal was considered a reasonable way of doing business.

Now the dispute is resolved could set a precedent because up to now efforts have been aimed mainly at stopping current pollution and little attempt has been made to assess the responsibility for past actions.

But if the task of fixing past blame is difficult in this relatively undeveloped region the job would be many times greater in, say, the Hudson River off New York City, where hundreds of industries over the years have added to the muck on the river bottom.

The Village of  Ticonderoga used the  LaChute as an Open Sewer for more than 150 years and still at times do.

In 1971, the mill in this area was shut down when the new mill was constructed.  There had been a dam at this site in one form or another since the 1750’s.  The existing masonry dam was built in 1903.  By 1974, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation began a state dam project in this area.  Demolition of the old paper mill buildings was well underway.  A. P. Reale and Sons of Ticonderoga had a $37,640 contract with the state to complete the demolition.  The center of the original masonry dam which regulated the Lake George water level was reconstructed.  Three new gates were installed, each capable of handling 300 cubic feet of water.
