HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Testing for PFOA contamination in the village of Hoosick Falls continued on Tuesday.
His concerns are justified, according to EPA On Scene Coordinator Margaret Gregor.
Staff members are testing for the hazardous chemical PFOA and other materials.
“Volatile organic compounds, semi-volatile organic compounds, PCBs, and heavy metal,” Gregor said.
The EPA hopes to have the test results back before the baseball pre-season begins. The testing will determine if past releases of PFOA into the air from local facilities may have contaminated the soil.
The EPA said it expects the test results to be back in about a month.
