"HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. — More than six weeks after declaring an environmental emergency in this upstate village, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo made his first visit here on Sunday, announcing that a new filter system had successfully cleared a toxic chemical known as PFOA from the municipal water supply.
“The PFOA is out of the water,” Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, said at a command center set up by the Department of Environmental Conservation. “Today is good news,” he added.
Despite Mr. Cuomo’s optimistic proclamations, state officials — including the governor’s office — were still warning residents not to use tap water for drinking or cooking until a full flush of the local water system had been completed."
