Tronox

Hattiesburg, MS: (Jun-23-07) The Hattiesburg Public School District and several businesses filed an environmental damage suit against chemical giant Tronox, alleging that the plant caused residents to live in a contaminated neighborhood for years. The lawsuit, originally filed in 1993, was settled in 2003 in a deal in which Tronox's predecessor Kerr-McGee never admitted liability for the site they never actually owned or operated. Union Camp Paper, now International Paper, owned the Gulf States' parent company and oversaw the closure of the Hattiesburg plant in the early 1960s. Details of the settlement were made public on June 22, 2007, declaring that Tronox paid $17 million to settle the lawsuit filed against them by Hattiesburg Public School District, RSCO Realty, Courtesy Motors, OMT Properties, Steadman Properties, Industrial Park Inc., Hattiesburg Beverage Co. and Corr-Williams Co. The total was divided into a $15 million settlement with the school district and businesses and $2 million for site cleanup and drainage work in the residential neighborhood.
