Environmental group rates state response to PFOA as 'incomplete'

HOOSICK FALLS -- It's been a year since the EPA recommended people in Hoosick Falls stop drinking the water coming from their taps, to prevent contamination from PFPA.

In the year since, the community has seen cleanup work, new filtration systems, and blood testing.

But residents say it's still not enough.

At the Capitol Monday, residents of Hoosick Falls and Petersburgh called out Gov. Cuomo and lawmakers for their handling of the crisis.

The state responded in a letter from the Department of Health, stating in part, "New York State has taken unprecedented action and spared no expense to secure clean drinking water for Hoosick Falls."
