US school to move because of poor air quality

THE air quality at a newly renovated school in Buffalo, New York, is making faculty and students sick and could force the school to temporarily relocate if a solution isn’t found soon, reported The Buffalo News this week.

The school’s superintendent, Ms Pamela C. Brown, said that was a possibility after listening to stories of disturbing environmental conditions, including sewage backup problems, at a school board meeting.

Mr Joseph P. Giusana, chief operating officer of the Division of Plant Services, presented a list of actions the facilities department has taken and plans to take to determine what is causing the problem.

“We have done some initial testing. Those tests have not shown any result that in any way indicates that we have a hazardous environment there, although there are conditions that are causing the discomfort that’s been stated,” Giusana said.
