BENNINGTON, Vt. - The governor of Vermont has signed a new law forcing companies to pay up for polluting the water.
Governor Phil Scott traveled to the Publyk House in Bennington on Friday to sign a new water contamination bill. It forces companies who pollute the water to pay for costs associated with cleanup.
Water supplies contaminated with PFOA were identified last spring near the former CHEMFAB site in North Bennington. That factory is now owned by Saint-Gobain, the same company blamed for PFOA contamination in Hoosick Falls.
