The Village council in Hoosick Falls has agreed to a settlement with Honeywell and Saint-Gobain that will mean $195,000 for losses the village's water and sewer system incurred over the past three years while dealing with the PFOA contamination.
Part of the agreement includes a 30 day heads-up for the two companies, should the village decide to file suit at some point.
Mayor Rob Allen says this is another step forward for the village.
DEC is also outlining possible new sources of water, including the Tomhannack Reservoir as a possible option.
