City of Everett To Sue Over Price Fixing

price fixing

Everett gets its drinking water from Spada Lake.

Last night the Everett City Council voted to join Tacoma and Spokane in a class action lawsuit against General Chemical Corporation and several other firms and individuals for fixing the price of “Alum” or liquid aluminum sulfate.

The city will retain the law firm of Keller Rohrback, L.L.P. to represent its interests in the lawsuit.

Liquid Aluminum Sulfate is used for water purification and wastewater treatment.

The Department of Justice and the FBI have been investigating bid rigging, price fixing and other manipulation of prices for Alum charged to cities across the country going back more than a decade.

The City of Everett is one of dozens of cities and counties across the country expected to participate in the price fixing class-action suit.
