A federal judge in southern Illinois has given preliminary approval to a $105 million settlement between Syngenta and community water systems in six states over one of the chemical maker’s popular agricultural herbicides. U.S. District Judge J. Phil Gilbert ruled that the settlement appeared to be “a good compromised result for the parties.” The agreement would settle a nearly eight-year-old lawsuit over weed-killing atrazine and help reimburse nearly 2,000 community water systems that have had to filter the chemical from their drinking water. Those water systems serve more than 52 million Americans in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri and Ohio.
