Hochul announced that the EPA will now assume the lead role in the troubling situation at an Attica business, which has left the community exposed to intolerable odors and emissions.

"The EPA & state DEC [will] to take the lead to investigate the situation and conduct air and dust sample testing. It is unacceptable that residents continue to endure poor air quality and worry about their health, even when in their homes," Rep. Hochul said.

Portions of a large pile of glass fragments at the facility are burning at 750 degrees, creating nuisance emissions. Further, odors and dust emanating from the facility have had an adverse affect on general quality of life in the community.
