PFOA formula

The New York state Senate Health and Environmental Conservation Committees have announced their long-awaited hearings into the PFOA drinking water contamination in the Hoosick Falls area. The committees say this morning the hearing will be August 30 at 10:30 at Hoosick Falls High School. They say the purpose of the hearing is to “explore the sources of water contamination, examine local, state, and federal oversight issues, and hear from experts, local residents, and others on what can be done to assist affected communities and mitigate future incidents.” Residents can offer public comment but must register ahead of time with the committees.
