In 1996 a series of lawsuits were filed against the utility company for allegedly harming hundreds of people in three California counties by contaminating the water. Approximately 1,100 people from Kings, Riverside and San Bernardino counties were included in the lawsuit that claimed PG&E's operations exposed neighboring homes to water contaminated with chromium 6, a possible carcinogen, from the late 1960s through the mid 1980s. Pacific Gas and Electric Co. have agreed to a $295 million settlement. (Feb-04-06) [TIMES DAILY]
