MA town sues over buried toxic materials

December 13, 2009 - Monsanto Co. and Cornell-Dubilier Electronics, Inc., which manufacture pesticides and electrical capacitors, respectively, have been linked to PCB contamination at three privately-owned properties in the Parker Street neighborhood near Keith Middle School, according to court documents the City of New Bedford filed Thursday in Bristol County Superior Court.

As part of an ongoing lawsuit brought by neighborhood residents against the city, city attorneys are suing Monsanto and Cornell-Dubilier, in addition to other persons and entities, for more than $5 million related to site assessment, clean-up costs, consulting fees, the purchase of private property and future remediation costs, according to court documents.
