The New York state-funded water filtration system intended to alleviate the PFOS water woes in Newburgh has been up and running for some time, but not for its originally intended purpose.

New York state Department of Environmental Conservation and Health Department officials were in Newburgh Monday night to provide an update on the city’s new carbon filtration system to filter PFOS contamination from the city’s drinking water. Many residents voiced concern about switching to the state-funded system. WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne reports the date for testing the system has been pushed back.
