3M Pays $10.3 Billion to Settle PFAS Liability With Water Systems

3M has reached a $10.3 billion settlement with public water systems over drinking water contamination linked to use of AFFF containing PFAS. The landmark 3M agreement will see the company pay PFAS treatment and testing at water systems that have detected contamination or do so in the future, while avoiding any admission of liability. The deal is still subject to judicial approval.
