Public Participation Opportunities

In response to a request for assistance from the local community, in October 2017, EPA’s contractor initiated a Technical Assistance Needs Assessment (TANA) in Hoosick Falls to identify, through interviews with community members, whether the community requires additional support to understand technical information and enable meaningful community involvement in the Superfund decision-making process. The TANA report was released to the public in September 2018 and is available in "Site Documents and Data."

Since that time, NYSDEC and NYSDOH have announced plans to establish a Hoosick Area Community Participation Work Group. For more infomation about upcoming public meetings and other public participation opportunities, visit the NYSDEC webpage: Information for Communities Impacted by Perfluorinated Compounds (PFCs).
