NCR agrees to spend $200 million on Fox River cleanup in settlement with state, federal officials:

State and federal officials have reached a settlement with NCR Corp. for $200 million in additional funds for the cleanup of toxic chemicals from the Fox River in northeastern Wisconsin, Attorney General Brad Schimel’s office reported on Monday.

The settlement between NCR and the U.S. Justice Department and state Justice Department completes one of the largest cases of its kind in U.S. history, with total cleanup costs now expected to exceed $1 billion.

So, 40 years from now, how much will Foxconn or its successor company be paying to clean up the Pike River watershed and whatever wetlands survive the new plant in Mount Pleasant?

One Response to NCR versus Foxconn

    A good conundrum to bring up all-of-a-sudden. The Fox Valley has had to deal with this for many years, and state and fed officials are only now coming to an agreement, via Schimel?

    Yes, this Foxconn deal creates many more environmental potential problems which Wisconsin has never previously had to deal with. But why has it had to come to this point–with our dysfunctional 2 political parties–to just now realize that this whole scenario stinks for the future of Wisconsin?!

    Hope 2018 and 2020 helps Dems, but so far I’m not holding my breath. Twould help to have something to vote FOR.
