Thursday, May 25th, 2023 -- 10:01 AM

(Raymond Neupert, WRN) Wausau will be suing PFAS manufacturers to recoup the costs of cleanup.

Wausau's city council voted unanimously on Tuesday night to join a lawsuit against the companies that make the forever chemicals that are contaminating the city's water supply.

Mayor Katie Rosenberg said that the goal of the lawsuit is to fight for the residents of Wausau and help the city pay for the costs affiliated with solving the problem.

Companies including Tyco Fire Products, 3M, DuPont, Dow, and others have been sued by more than a dozen states due to PFAS contamination. 3M has a factory in Wausau.
