    What about all of the former Ashtabula residents who grew up with this for decades? There were days you couldn’t go outside because of the smell.

    Refer to class eligibility.

  10. LC says:

    My household did not fill out the form because it came addressed to “resident” and not directly to the homeowner and it requested personal info such as copy of drivers license. With all the identity fraud we were suspicious and as it turns out – WE LOST OUT. Family has lived in the same house for over 90 years, looks like the most we will ever get is health issues from the place!

    ADMIN – Hi LC,

    I encourage you to sign up for our newsletter that way you are always aware of the most recent class action settlements.

    I just found out about this and I live in the area is it to late for me to file a claim?

  15. Lisa A Silvieus says:

    So many of us are learning about this too late. It does not seem right. We live in this area and never received any information. Why such a short deadline and where does the rest of the money go that was designated for the residents in a two mile radius?

    ADMIN – Hi Lisa,
