KALAMAZOO, MI, Nov. 2, 2018 (NPR) -Residents of a town near Kalamazoo join a federal class action lawsuit against 3M and Georgia-Pacific over PFAS contamination.

The lawsuit alleges that both companies played a role in the high levels of industrial chemicals that were discovered in the city of Parchment’s municipal water in July.

Nick Coulson, an attorney with Liddle & Dubin P.C. which is the firm that filed the lawsuit, says a group of Parchment residents told the firm about the issue.
