Following years of legal battles, a settlement has finally been filed in the Hoosick Falls PFOA contamination case.

The companies blamed for contaminating the community's water supply for years have now agreed to pay $ 65 million to settle a lawsuit. The agreement, which still needs approval from a judge, will compensate residents for health problems caused by their exposure to contaminated water and create a system where they can be screened for issues in the years ahead. Just how much money a person gets depends on several factors such as property value loss and how much PFOA is detected in their blood
