Test results on chemical in drinking water to be discussed in Merrimack, Litchfield

The Associated Press

MERRIMACK — Public meetings have been scheduled in Merrimack and Litchfield to discuss the results of recent tests related to the presence of a chemical in drinking water at the Saint-Gobain facility in Merrimack.

The meetings are scheduled Wednesday at the Mastricola Elementary School in Merrimack and Thursday at the Litchfield Middle School. Both are at 7 p.m.

The tests were conducted after Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics found the presence of PFOA, an emerging contaminant, in its drinking water.

Last week, the governors of New Hampshire, New York and Vermont urged the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to review and issue new safe drinking water guidelines regarding the detection of PFOA in water systems and in private wells.
