Tonawanda Coke Soil Study
Have you and your property been impacted by Tonawanda Coke's pollution? Are we in danger because the company is still operating?
This is an informational meeting for Grand Islanders (and anyone else that feels they are affected) about the upcoming soil and health studies conducted by CSCP and University at Buffalo.
We will also discuss ways in which we can move forward as a community by arming ourselves with resources and tools to protect ourselves from future environmental threats. Details about how you can volunteer in our upcoming soil study will be provided as well.
