In June 2023, 3M and DuPont proposed settlements of claims by public water suppliers affected by PFAS contamination. Virtually all public water systems that have PFAS detections in at least one of their supply sources, or are required to test for it under UCMR5, will be eligible to receive funds to recover clean-up costs, but the process of allocating these funds is expected to be complex. This downloadable document includes answers to the most frequently asked questions that we have heard from municipalities and water systems about the proposed PFAS settlements.
Our team, vastly experienced in water contamination cases, is available to answer any additional questions you may have on the settlements details. Given the complexities surrounding the proposed settlements, by working with a law firm with experience managing water contamination cases, water systems can put themselves on an easier path to cost recovery and avoid potentially costly mistakes.
