Dioxane Groundwater Contamination in Bethpage, NY
The Bethpage Water District (BWD) sued several companies, including Northrop Grumman, for costs incurred in addressing 1,4-dioxane contamination in area groundwater. BWD alleges the companies were negligent in instructing commercial users to dispose of waste products containing 1,4-dioxane, an ingredient used in manufacturing solvent, in a way that makes contamination of groundwater more likely.
