Autumn

The official website of the Village of Hoosick Falls, NY—the Grandma Moses Discovery Village. Located on the Hoosic River, among the bucolic foothills of the Green Mountains in the town of Hoosick, in northeast corner of New York's Rensselaer County. Home of the historic Walter A. Wood Mowing and Reaping Machinery Company—once the largest company of its kind in the world. The former factory town is now a picturesque quaint village with scenery that still inspires artists like it did with Grandma Moses in years past.

This website is in development. Areas may be temporarily blank or unavailable. Sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you for your patience.

New York State DEC Proposes Sampling Fish for PFCs in Hoosick Falls, Petersburgh, and Newburgh.

September 21, 2016—DEC fish contaminant monitoring staff and DOH fish consumption advisory staff recommend that fish from waters contaminated by perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) at Petersburgh and Hoosick Falls and from waters contaminated by perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) at Newburgh be collected and analyzed to provide an initial assessment of the potential bioaccumulation and risk posed by these and other perfluorinated compounds (PFCs).

Senator Gillibrand Requests CDC to Proactively Conduct Public Health Assessment of Saint-Gobain Site in Hoosick Falls

Public Health Assessment Would Help Federal Agencies Develop a Public Health Action Plan to Address Environmental Crisis Caused by PFOA

September 20, 2016—U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), a member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, today sent a letter urging the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to use its authority to immediately conduct a public health assessment of the Saint-Gobain site in Hoosick Falls and surrounding communities. A public health assessment would allow the CDC to do the comprehensive review necessary to develop a public health action plan to help address this environmental crisis.

EPA Proposes to Add Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Site in Hoosick Falls, N.Y. to the Federal Superfund List

Groundwater Contaminated with PFOA and Volatile Organic Compounds Public Comments due by November 8, 2016

September 9, 2016— The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed adding the Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics site in the Village of Hoosick Falls, N.Y. to its Superfund National Priorities List (NPL) of the country's most hazardous waste sites. Groundwater at the Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics facility, located at 14 McCaffrey Street, is contaminated with Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) and Trichloroethylene. Groundwater supplying the village’s public water supply wells is contaminated with PFOA, as well as Vinyl Chloride and 1,2-Dichloroethane (1,2-DCA). The Vinyl Chloride and 1,2-DCA are both below EPA drinking water standards. PFOA does not break down easily and therefore is very persistent in the environment. Its toxicity and persistence in the environment can pose adverse effects to human health and the environment. The Village of Hoosick Falls has added carbon filtration to its public water supply, thereby providing clean water to local residents. Read more…

The newspaper of record for the Village of Hoosick Falls is the Eastwick Press. Public notices will be posted in the paper.
