Waterloo village board joins class action suit over Seneca Lake contamination

The Waterloo Village Board has joined a lawsuit.

It’s a class action suit against the manufacturer of aqueous film-forming foam.

Also known as AFFF, the foam has been identified as a contaminant in Seneca Lake, the source of the village’s public water supply, according to the Finger Lakes Times.

The board voted April 13 to retain New York City-based Napoli-Shkolnik, one of the nation’s largest environmental law firms, to conduct the investigation and take legal action related to the perfluorinated chemical contamination of the lake.
