C8 – It’s Not Over

An organization is launching an effort to hold DuPont accountable for commitments made to Mid-Ohio Valley residents whose water was contaminated with C8 as a result of industrial processes at DuPont Washington Works.

A 2005 class action settlement spells out the company’s agreement to address the contamination of six local communities. However, Keep Your Promises DuPont says the company is falling short.

The group is demanding that the company appropriately compensate those who are sick from C8 exposure, effectively administer medical monitoring for the impacted class and ensure that the water is safe to drink. The non-profit organization is a partnership between the Action Network Fund and local residents. (River City News Network)
