    Vermont Officials to Talk Settlement in Water Contamination

    Vermont Gov. Phil Scott and Attorney General T.J. Donovan are going to be providing an update on the settlement in the chemical contamination of more than 150 private wells in Bennington.

    Scott and Donovan are scheduled to provide the update Wednesday, along with legislative leaders from Bennington.

    In January, the state announced an agreement in principal with Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics to provide roughly $26 million to expand municipal water service to most of the affected homes or long-term filtering for wells in areas that couldn't be served by new water lines.

    The state considers Saint-Gobain to be responsible for widespread water contamination with the chemical known as PFOA, a suspected carcinogen, around two former ChemFab Corp. factories in Bennington.
