CBC Coating, Inc., Menasha Corporation, U.S. Paper Mills Corp., WTM 1, New-Page Corp., Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Neenah-Menasha Sewer Commission,Wisconsin and City of Appleton, Wisconsin Propose $56 Million Settlements to Pay for a Portion of a Massive Cleanup of Contaminated Sediments in the Fox River

Six companies and two units of government in the Fox Valley proposed settlements totaling $56 million to pay for a portion of a massive cleanup of contaminated sediments in the Fox River in northeastern Wisconsin. The settlements, which must still be approved by a federal judge, would settle claims against the eight parties in an expensive and longstanding legal dispute over financial responsibility for removing sediments tainted with toxic chemicals known as polychlorinated biphenyls. The companies and government units said in federal court records that they had reached settlements with state and federal authorities and the Menominee and Oneida Indian tribes after months of negotiations with a mediator, U.S. Magistrate Aaron E. Goodstein. Reaching settlements totaling $54 million were the City of Appleton, the Neenah- Menasha Sewerage Commission, CBC Coating Inc., Menasha Corp., U.S. Paper Mills Corp. and WTM 1, formerly known as Wisconsin Tissue Mills. In separate court filings, Kimberly-Clark and New-Page Corp. indicated settlements of about $2 million.
