Paul Napoli, an attorney with Napoli Shkolnik, a law firm based in Long Island and endorsed by the state Association of Counties, presented to the town board Monday.

“You shouldn’t be the ones responsible to pay for it,” Napoli said. “It should be the companies that created [the contaminants.]”

Two of the primary producers of PFAS, Napoli said, were 3M and DuPont, which made Scotchgard and Teflon, respectively.

“They knew back in the ’60s this product had a tendency not to biodegrade,” Napoli said.

The companies also had knowledge that the products were bioaccumulative and toxic in nature, Napoli said.
