To The Daily Sun,
I moved to New Hampshire in 1996, but grew up in Hoosick Falls, New York.
If you want to find out what happens when a town/village's aquifer gets contaminated just Google "Hoosick Falls NY water supply." High rates of cancer led a local citizens to get the water tested. A hazardous contaminant from local industry was discovered.
Although this Dupont-manufactured toxin has been known since 2000, it was not required to be tested for. It's been a couple months now that the residents of Hoosick Falls have been on bottled water. They are waiting for a temporary filtration system to come on line and a more permanent solution to be determined. Property values have tanked. It's a nightmare for them.
I would be very careful of your water supply.
