Tainted water suit allowed to proceed

U.S. District Court Judge Renee Marie Bumb ruled on Friday that claims against Dupont relating to drinking water contamination in South Jersey may proceed as a class action. Affected are an estimated 14,000 to 15,000 customers of the Penns Grove Water Company, as well as private well owners in the area.

The suit alleges that drinking water has been tainted by PFOA, a chemical associated with the production of Teflon.
