Report released following PFOA water crisis

Report released following PFOA water crisis (WRGB)

ALBANY, NY (WRGB)-- The State Senate has released a water quality report, after its hearing in Hoosick Falls about PFOA last year.

They're calling for an independent group to focus on clean drinking water.

It would set state requirements for unregulated contaminants like PFOA that are stricter than federal guidelines.

The group would also come up with a process to notify municipalities in case of a potential threat.

The Senate is also calling on the state to take up some new responsibilities, like going after anyone potentially responsible for contamination, and adhere to federal health advisory levels.
