Primarily those in Hoosick Falls, Petersburgh and Newburgh.

The State Drinking Water Quality Council met yesterday to talk about setting new standards for PFOA and PFOS in drinking water, after missing an October 2nd deadline.

Petersburgh resident Connie Plouffe and Dr. Judith Schreiber of the National Resources Defense Council explain.
