TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) - Congresswoman Louise Slaughter wants to make sure the State DEC keeps the Tonawanda Coke Plant on its radar.
Slaughter has sent a letter to the DEC urging the agency to continue close monitoring of the plant despite budget constraints.
As recently as 2009, toxic benzene levels outside the plant were reportedly 75-times higher than state and federal guidelines.
But this past October, the DEC said levels had dropped almost 70% at a monitoring station in the surrounding neighborhood.
