A second bottled water pickup has been scheduled for Southern New Hampshire residents whose wells were contaminated with the compound known as PFOA.

The state Department of Environmental Services will provide the bottled water, paid for by Saint-Gobain, at the Litchfield Transfer station on Sunday, from 9 to 3.

Residents who qualify include those within a one-mile radius of the Saint-Gobain plastics plant, as well as those in designated neighborhoods outside of that radius.

DES estimates the average family will need about 60 gallons of water for the first month. The department  expects household deliveries will begin in early May.
