HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will be in Hoosick Falls for a round table discussion of water contamination.

Hoosick Falls Central School District Superintendent Kenneth Facin says in a news release that residents of the village and nearby Petersburgh are invited to the meeting Friday afternoon in the high school auditorium.

The Rensselaer County communities are dealing with drinking water contamination from PFOA, a toxic chemical long used in making Teflon and similar materials.

Facin says Democrat Gillibrand will hear from residents talking about how the contamination has affected their lives.

The meeting, open to the public, is at 2:30 p.m.
