Hoosick Falls residents in a letter to Republican Sen. Kemp Hannon released Monday urged him to give them access to documents related to the drinking water contamination in their community.

“Now we need your help to learn more about how our communities became polluted,” the eight residents wrote in the letter. “As you are aware, we have had to deal with misleading information and a complete lack of transparency when all we have wanted is basic information pertinent to our health and safety.”

The letter itself was released by the Environmental Advocates of New York.

In the letter, the Hoosick Falls residents thank Hannon for his push on Drinking Water Quality Institute and the Senate Republican-backed effort for a clean water bond act.

But they also want Hannon, the Senate Health Committee chairman, to go further and release the information gained by lawmakers when reviewing the PFOA contamination in the village, which has been blamed on Honeywell and Saint Gobain facilities.

“While we are discouraged that requests for this information have been ignored by the Senate, we have no reason to believe that you wish to continue this troubling trend by withholding information crucial to the health of our families and overall community,” the residents wrote.
