Saint-Gobain Reviewing Plans To Provide PFOA-Free Water In Bedford, New Hampshire

PFOA formula

A company at the center of investigations into PFOA contamination of water supplies in Hoosick Falls, New York and Bennington, Vermont has received proposals to provide clean drinking water to a similarly affected community in New Hampshire.

Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics says three design estimates were submitted this week to provide clean drinking water to 61 properties in Bedford, New Hampshire.

The proposals were reviewed by the Town of Bedford and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services.

One option would be to extend PFOA-free municipal water from the Merrimack Village District Water Works. The other two proposals would extend lines from the Manchester Water Works.

Saint-Gobain says it will submit a plan to its management by September 22nd for approval and complete construction by spring 2018.
