BUFFALO, NY-- We've reported for a while now, that asthma rates around the Peace Bridge are nearly four times the national average.
So, about a month ago, the state sent a press release about recent air quality tests in the area. It said pollution levels there are below the national standards, and that the air around the bridge was as good as other neighborhoods in the city.
Great news, right? Not so fast.
Our watchdog partners at Investigative Post took an in-depth look at the study, and ripped it apart to the point where the state is now admitting the release was flat-out wrong.
Watch Investigative Post's Dan Telvock take the state to task for the report, and the way the testing was done in the player above.
