The Clean Air Coalition of Western New York received a $100,000 federal grant to take control of air pollution in the town of Tonawanda, NY, reports the Buffalo News. Funding comes from the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Community Action for a Renewed Environment (CARE) program.
"We clearly know that Tonawanda has an air pollution issue," Erin Heaney, executive director of the coalition told the news source.
According to the EPA, Tonawanda features some of the highest concentration of air-regulated facilities in the state. Homeowners in the region should install air purifiers in their homes to reduce exposure to airborne toxins. The grant from the EPA provides just enough to research the troubling air quality levels. Heaney claimed were present in the community such as five pollutants that exceed state health guidelines, reports the news source.
The IQAir HealthPro Plus HEPA Air Purifiers provide excellent filtration to reduce toxin levels in the home - limiting homeowners and their families' exposure to potential danger.
