The Village of Hoosick Falls is considering a settlement by companies tied to contaminated drinking water.

Companies Saint-Gobain and Honeywell have extended a settlement offer to the Rensselaer County community that has seen its water system and private wells tainted with a chemical used at industrial buildings within the village.

Honeywell Spokesman Victoria Streitfeld emailed a statement to WAMC that says under the agreement, the companies “would reimburse the Village for costs it incurred related to the presence of PFOA in the Village’s water supply.”

The issue will be discussed at a Village Board meeting later this month.
