Petersburgh settles with PFOA polluter

Mar 02, 2017 12:02 am
Carmen Chau reports for WTEN in Albany that the Town of Petersburgh in Rensselaer County voted Feb. 28 to accept a small settlement from the company that poisoned the town's water supply. Taconic would Petersburgh over $30,000 for past costs associated with the PFOA pollution in the town. “We have a very good relationship, talking relationship, with Taconic,” said Alan Webster, Petersburgh Town Supervisor. “We have worked very hard, and they have worked very hard at going to the table.” The Petersburgh settlement does not prevent the town from claiming other costs from Taconic. The night before, Hoosick Falls town officials tabled a similar settlement with two companies that polluted its water. Read the full story on the WTEN website.
