BUFFALO, NY — A final air quality analysis report for the Buffalo Police D District — shut down in February after complaints of mold problems — was released, finding no visible evidence of mold and air quality levels consistent with official standards, according to WKBW-TV.

According to the story, the report was prepared by Leader Professional Services Inc. of Clarence, New York, and released by the Mayor''s office to the public on Monday.

The report found that the police station levels of temperature, carbon monoxide, relative humidity and carbon dioxide levels were all in line with the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standards, the story stated.

In addition, there were no signs of mold overgrowth or mold impact on air quality and radon levels were within the acceptable limits, the story noted.

The report did recommend that periodic standing water in the basement be addressed, as it can lead to moisture problems, the story added.
