Poestenkill Gets $3 Million State Grant for Water System due to PFOA
The Town of Poestenkill has been awarded $3.32 million in state funding to provide safe water to residents after the local water was contaminated with PFOA. The grant will cover 60% of the estimated cost associated with creating a second water district covering Algonquin Middle School and the surrounding area. State and county officials however are still not investigating the source of the water contamination. Poestenkill Town Board member Eric Wohlleber gives an update with Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
