New York water council takes no action

WNYT reports that New York State's Drinking Water Quality Council met Oct. 17, and took no action. They were supposed to set maximum contaminant levels for pollutants PFOA, PFOs, and 1,4 Dioxane in the state by Oct. 2. They finally met 15 days after that deadline to set standards on the toxic chemicals that have been detected in municipal drinking water supplies in Hoosick Falls and other cities and towns. Instead, they again took no action. "I don't think anyone should be happy today," said Liz Moran, of Environmental Advocates of New York. "This is a pattern at this point, delay, delay, delay. It seems to be a repeat thing with this administration." The Council will meet again next month. Read the full story at the WNYT website.
