An official with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services stressed Tuesday that federal funds are necessary to help communities remediate PFOA contamination.
“We really do need federal funds,” said Clark Freise, assistant commissioner with DES.
While there is a large pot of money for infrastructure investments, Freise said he is hopeful that something could be set up specifically for municipalities to address water remediation. And although there is some state aid that could potentially be used to assist local communities with the initiative, “we really need a larger pot of money,” he said during a field hearing with Rep. Annie Kuster and Rep. Chris Pappas.
