Yesterday, Vermont state officials announced they had discovered a potentially cancer-causing chemical in some private water wells in North Bennington. The governor's office says test results revealed abnormally high levels of a chemical called PFOA in three residential wells there. It says the public drinking supply is not contaminated.
Friday afternoon, state officials held a public meeting at the North Bennington Firehouse to answer questions about the situation.
Reporter Howard Weiss-Tisman attended the public meeting and spoke with VPR from North Bennington about what officials had to say.
