A Johnson Controls entity agreed to pay $17.5 million to resolve claims from hundreds of homeowners in Peshtigo, Wisconsin, that their water was contaminated by chemicals in a firefighting foam, in what attorneys said Thursday is the first agreement of its kind in sprawling multidistrict litigation.

“This settlement marks a significant step in victims’ efforts to secure just compensation for those impacted by PFAS contamination caused by [firefighting foam] AFFF,” Paul Napoli, an attorney with Napoli Shkolnik PLLC, who represents the plaintiffs, said in a statement.
