MASSENA — The St. Regis Mohawk Tribal Council said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s chosen remedy to remediate the Grasse River was a “devastating failure.”

Tribal Council members said in a press release that they had sent a letter to the EPA this week to share their ongoing objection to the remedy that was prescribed for the remediation, which was completed last October.
