Kipp settles

If this stands, a bunch of east-siders stand to receive close to $100K per household, and another bunch an average of $47K.

On the other hand, their property values likely have taken a major hit, so maybe it's a wash. They can still sue for specific health problems they think are caused by exposure to Kipp's chemicals.

I don't know if Kipp's trying to hide behind Walker didn't work, or if it DID work and without Walker each homeowner would be getting twice the present settlement. In any case, it's surprising how fast this got settled, after years and years of stalling.

What happens if Well No. 8 turns out to be polluted by the same plume of solvents?

My reading of it is that the affected 85 homeowners are done with respect to damage to their property.....not their health. If the plume does show contamination of Well #8, and/or some additional group of homeowners, they'd be free to pursue legal action.
