DuPont Reaches Settlement on Contaminated Water Lawsuit

By Jim Hooker

Chemical giant DuPont has agreed to pay over eight million dollars to settle a lawsuit involving polluted drinking water in Salem County.  The company was accused of contaminating the drinking water with the chemical agent used to make Teflon.  The 4800 plaintiffs living in Penns Grove have the option of taking a water filtration system, or the cash equivalent.

    DuPont will pay for a “Filtration System” or the cash cost equivalent of one? That’s really “some” offer isn’t it?! What about the quite possible very serious health repercussions to any and all of the people who may have drank the polluted water and/or of whom have been affected by this contamination?
