Olin Corp.

McIntosh, AL: A pollution lawsuit was filed on behalf of hundreds of McIntosh residents over alleged mercury contamination on their property. Olin used mercury to produce chlorine at its south Alabama plant for more than 20 years, but the use of the harmful chemical ended in 1974 and the plant closed in 1982. Olin has made a $3 million settlement offer to plaintiffs, but 95% of all clients involved must agree to the settlement and distribution of funds. (Oct-25-06) [DURHAM HERALD SUN: OLIN MERCURY]
