The state Assembly will hold hearings in the fall on water quality issues, including an examination of the Cuomo administration's response to toxic chemical contamination of drinking water in the upstate village of Hoosick Falls, officials announced Wednesday.

"Recent reports of water contamination in municipalities across the state have highlighted the need for a thorough review of measures to ensure clean and healthy water in our communities," Democratic Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie said in a news release.
