Here's who's asking for money from 3M's $850 million settlement [View all]

The first proposals for spending a portion of $720 million from an environmental lawsuit mostly ask for the same thing: Plumbing.

Officials have released the applications for a $25-million piece of the 2018 settlement against the 3M Co. Most of the 18 applications are seeking connections to city water systems, so they can shut down privately-owned wells.

The applications include a $5 million water system for a building and a request from an Indian community for a well feasibility study in West Lakeland Township.

The applications are being collected by the state Pollution Control Agency and the Department of Natural Resources.

The two agencies are distributing the settlement money from the environmental damage lawsuit. In February 2018, 3M paid $850 million after the Attorney General sued for environmental damage caused by chemicals manufactured by 3M.
