CUOMO DOWNPLAYS HOOSICK FALLS DELAY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo said his administration was aggressive in its handling of the Hoosick Falls water crisis. He downplayed the year-long delay by his state health department in notifying Hoosick Falls residents that their water was tainted with dangerous levels of PFOA, or perfluorooctanoic acid, that has been linked to unusual types of cancer. The state health department had assured residents the water was safe to drink, and only changed its position after the federal Environmental Protection Agency cautioned residents against consuming the water.
