CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services says the Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics company has agreed to pay for efforts to design a potential extension of public water service into the southern New Hampshire area where PFOA contamination is being investigated.

The department said last month that at least 52 private wells, most of them in Litchfield, were showing elevated levels of the chemical PFOA and that residents of roughly 400 homes affected by PFOA contamination may need to drink bottled water all summer.

The state says it’s continuing to investigate other potential parties who may also bear financial responsibilities.
