Latest Hoosick well tests show safer levels

The newest round of state tests on public and private water wells in the town of Hoosick and village of Hoosick Falls show seven more wells with levels of a possible carcinogen above the threshold recommended by federal officials.

Most of the 153 wells tested over the last week had levels of perfluorooctanoic acid, or PFOA, below the Environmental Protection Agency’s safety threshold of 100 parts per trillion, an update from the state departments of Health and Environmental Conservation posted Friday show.

State officials warned residents to expect lower water pressure and cloudier-than-usual tap water during the flushing process, but said it’s no cause for concern.
