Tonawanda Study Area: Health Outcomes Review
The New York State Department of Health conducted a health outcomes review for Tonawanda and surrounding areas in Erie County in response to community concerns about potential health effects from exposures to emissions from the area's industries and motor vehicle traffic. Concerns were heightened after the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation released results from an air quality monitoring study in 2009. Working with community members and the Department of Environmental Conservation, the State Health Department developed a Tonawanda health outcomes study area, with several sub-areas, during 2010 - 2012.
