U.B. researchers will soon study the effect of Tonawanda Coke emissions on the health of people who live in that community.

The multi-year study will analyze how emissions may have impacted people who work there as well.

A federal judge ordered the Tonawanda Coke Corporation to fund the 11-million dollar study, after the company was convicted of violating the clean air act.
