Save the Date for next public meeting on Sep. 28th --
he next community meeting to discuss PFOA issues in Bennington is scheduled for September 28, 2016 at 6pm at the CAPS Auditorium at Bennington College.
As sampling and re-sampling continues within the area of interest, direct bottled water delivery will be made available to those impacted residences. Please contact W.B. Mason directly at 508-436-8869 if you have questions about your current delivery.
Thank you to all the generous folks at D's Market and Deli who stepped up in a time of need and acted as a key resource in the State's response to PFOA contamination in the North Bennington community. Your efforts have been appreciated by all.
Re-sampling of water supply wells to begin week of Sep. 19: Re-sampling of a number of the water supply wells in the Bennington/North Bennington area that have non-detect results or PFOA concentrations less than 20 parts per trillion will start the week of September 19th. It is anticipated that this sampling effort will take about two weeks. The exact homes to be re-sampled have not yet been determined. You will be receiving an email or a phone call from the State's consultant Weston & Sampson to schedule the re-sampling of your water supply.
As with initial sampling efforts, analytical results will be sent by mail two to three weeks after the sample was collected. If you have any questions about this re-sampling effort, please contact DEC staff Richard Spiese or John Schmeltzer at (802) 828-1138.
