Tonight at 6, the village board in Hoosick Falls, New York will consider an interim settlement agreement with Saint-Gobain and Honeywell, the two companies blamed for PFOA pollution in the village water supply. PFOA has been linked to ill health effects, including cancer, and the village has been using a filtration system since the end of 2016. Mayor Rob Allen says the agreement maintains the Rensselaer County village’s legal rights. Allen spoke today with WAMC’s Ian Pickus.
