Shumlin: North Bennington Will Be Made 'Whole Again'

Gov. Peter Shumlin assured residents of North Bennington on Tuesday that the state would do everything possible to address its "horrid situation" including putting pressure on the company responsible for its contaminated water. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics has been identified as the source for the perfluorooctanoic (PFOA) found in the municipal water of Hoosick Falls, N.Y., and is believed to be responsible for the same toxin found in private wells in North Bennington.
