The NY Department of Environmental Conservation and Department of Health has announced that the Village of Hoosick Falls' new full capacity municipal water filtration system is fully operational.
An interim system has been on-line since March of last year.
Officials say that with the newly installed system the public water supply is non-detect for the chemical PFOA and is acceptable for all use.
A settlement agreement has been reached between Hoosick Falls and manufacturers Saint-Gobain and Honeywell over the contamination of the village's water supply with PFOA.
