Vermont seeks OK for settlement over water contamination

Associated Press
September 8, 2017 

BENNINGTON, Vt.  — The state is asking a court to approve a settlement it reached with a company over contamination of some private water wells with a suspected carcinogen.

Under the agreement announced in July, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics will pay $20 million to extend municipal water lines to about 200 homes in the Bennington area. As part of the deal, Vermont's lawsuit was dropped.
About six people opposed the proposal during a 30-day comment period, Department of Environmental Conservation attorney Matt Chapman told Vermont Public Radio.

"The state responded to each individual person who commented, and we take each comment very seriously," he said. "I think that in this particular case the state reached the conclusion that after a year and a half of negotiation it represents the best interests of both the state of Vermont and the community."
