Ithaca Gun/Fall Creek Natural Area to Receive Containment Barrier

Ithaca Falls

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will install a containment barrier at the base of the cliff within the Fall Creek Natural Area located adjacent to the former Ithaca Gun Company.

While EPA has removed a large quantity of contaminated soil and debris from the site, it is evident that more remains. The barrier will control material that might be dislodged from the cliff face in the future. It will protect visitors to the Fall Creek Nature Area from exposure to contaminated soil. Work is scheduled to begin in May 2021.
