CORTEVA, DUPONT, CHEMOURS TO PAY $1.185 BILLION TO SETTLE "FOREVER CHEMICALS" LAWSUIT
by Kris Maher, Wall Street Journal

Three companies with ties to former chemical maker DuPont said Friday they had agreed to pay $1.185 billion in the first major settlement in a landmark environmental fight in which hundreds of communities allege that so-called "forever chemicals" in firefighting foam contaminated drinking water.

Chemours, DuPont and Corteva reached the proposed nationwide class-action settlement to resolve their part in lawsuits brought by about 300 communities against an array of chemical companies and others that made or sold firefighting foam.

Cities from Philadelphia to San Diego say PFAS chemicals in firefighting foam leached into drinking water, requiring the water facilities to install treatment systems. Cities have sued to recoup those costs, typically seeking damages in the tens of millions of dollars.

The companies said the agreement would resolve all PFAS-related water-system claims against them. They said the settlement could eventually cover public systems that provide drinking water to the majority of the U.S. population.
