Funding secured for air monitoring study near Teterboro Airport
Residents who live near Teterboro Airport will be glad to hear the money needed to fund an air monitoring study has been secured. Senator Paul Sarlo (D-NJ) says a grant for $450,000 was secured to fund the study that will look at air quality and noise pollution levels in 17 towns around the airport. The study will collect emission data from four sites, two along the fence line of the airport and two in residential areas. The Department of Environmental Protection and the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission have been planning the study for nearly two years. It's expected to take up to a year to complete.
