The official website of the Village of Hoosick Falls, NY—the Grandma Moses Discovery Village. Located on the Hoosic River, among the bucolic foothills of the Green Mountains in the town of Hoosick, in northeast corner of New York's Rensselaer County. Home of the historic Walter A. Wood Mowing and Reaping Machinery Company—once the largest company of its kind in the world. The former factory town is now a picturesque quaint village with scenery that still inspires artists like it did with Grandma Moses in years past.

This website is in development. Areas may be temporarily blank or unavailable. Sorry for any inconvenience. Thank you for your patience.

NYSDOH Risk Characterization and Health Effects for Hoosick Falls Water Supply

NYSDOH

The Village has requested guidance from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) in analyzing our water contamination and its potential impact on public health. We received their response via the Rensselaer County Department of Health on January 12th 2015. It states:

The presence of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) at the levels detected in the supply wells and in finished water does not constitute an immediate health hazard. Based on specific toxicity information for PFOA, the estimated exposure to PFOA in the water at the highest level detected (0.54 µg/L) is at least 50,000 times lower than PFOA exposures that are known to cause health effects in animals. The detection of PFOA indicates a need to identify the sources of contamination and to take measures to reduce it so that long-term exposure can be reduced and future exposures prevented.

Village Receives SAM Grant

Rogers Avenue Water Tank

The Village of Hoosick Falls has received a State and Municipal Facilities Program (SAM) grant for $95,000 from the Dormitory Authority of the State of NY (DASNY) to cover the cost of restoring the Rogers Avenue water tank. The grant funding was secured with the help of Senator Marchione's office. The repairs included relining of the interior, repair of cracks, and installation of an isolation valve. These repairs were necessary to keep the tank operational for the forseeable future. The repairs were completed in late 2014. This grant will enable the Village to repurpose some of the funds slated for the project, and also relieve us from having to borrow funds.

The newspaper of record for the Village of Hoosick Falls is the Eastwick Press. Public notices will be posted in the paper.

Maps are available at the HAYC3 Armory to drive the route and view the quilts among our pastoral countryside. If you drive the trail, be sure to take a selfie and share it on your social networks using the hashtag #BQSelfie!
