Poestenkill PFOA Meeting Sept 27 2021 Overview

PFOA, a toxic “forever chemical” has been found in January 2021 in drinking water wells at the Algonquin Middle School in Poestenkill and nearby residential wells. A community meeting was held on September 27th at the Poestenkill VFW to address the problem. We hear an introduction from Eric Wohlleber of the Poestenkill Town Board. We then hear a question from resident Paula Heilmann, with responses from Sean Mahar, Chief of Staff for NYS DEC and Judith Enck, a local resident who is a former EPA Regional administrator who dealt with PFOA in Hoosick Falls. We finish with a comment by local resident Suzanne Sennett. By Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Radio Network.
