Chemical Companies Agree to Pay Pennsylvania $100 Million Over PCB Contamination

Three chemical companies will pay Pennsylvania $100 million dollars to resolve claims that they contaminated the state’s waterways with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

The Monsanto Company, Solutia INC., and Pharmacia LLC manufactured products containing the toxic chemicals, which damaged waterways and other natural resources across Pennsylvania, according to the state.

“By securing this settlement, DEP is holding Monsanto accountable for what it did to Pennsylvania’s water and making sure that Monsanto is paying for the work the Commonwealth has done to keep its water clean,” said Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Rich Negrin in a statement.
