JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) – A demolition company now admits it violated the Clean Air Act when it tore down the former Dahlstrom industrial complex on Buffalo Street in Jamestown.

From January 2012 to November 2013, Lycoming Construction Services, LLC of Williamsport, Pa. worked to tear down a cluster of condemned buildings on either side of the Chadakoin River. Despite knowing a survey found buildings with asbestos inside, in February 2012, employees were sent in to remove the material without proper safety measures in violation of the Clean Air Act.

When sentenced in August, the company could be fined up to $500,000.
