A sampling of three water bodies near the Dunn Landfill in Rensselaer found contamination for PFOS. PFAS are a family of chemicals with direct links to cancers, motor disorders in children, obesity, endocrine disruption, and liver and thyroid diseases. Rensselaer Environmental Action and PEER have called for DEC to ensure that the water supply is not being contaminated. In part one of our coverage of the March 14 news conference, we hear from Dave Ellis and former EPA regional administrator Judith Enck. By Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Radio Network.
