ALBANY - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is proposing to add the Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics site in the Village of Hoosick Falls.

In 1999, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics purchased the facility and began operations there, using PFOA in its manufacturing process.

"By placing this site on the federal Superfund list, the EPA will continue to work hard to address the contamination at the source, and hold the polluters accountable for the full cost of cleanup,” said Judith A. Enck, EPA Regional Administrator.

The public will have 60 days for comments from the public.

In January, 2016, DEC added Saint-Gobain site to the state’s Superfund list and nominated the site for inclusion in the federal Superfund list.
