(St. Paul, MN) — The company 3M is settling multiple contamination lawsuits for over ten-billion-dollars. The lawsuits claim 3M contaminated many U.S drinking water systems with “forever chemicals,” known as PFAS, that are typically found in consumer products and firefighting foam. On Thursday, the company announced they’ll pay anywhere from ten-point-three to 12-and-a-half-billion-dollars to settle the suits and compensate water providers. 3M chairman Mike Roman said the company aims to stop producing PFAS chemicals by 2026.
