If you are a Sewage Treatment System Operator in the United States whose system was in operation between January 6, 2018 and November 21, 2023, Charleston Water System’s class action settlements may affect your rights.

Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP and AquaLaw PLC announce that proposed settlements (“Settlements”) have been reached in a class action with Costco Wholesale Corporation, CVS Health Corporation, The Procter & Gamble Company, Target Corporation, Walgreen Co. and Walmart Inc. (“Defendants”) regarding the manufacturing, design, marketing and/or sale of their flushable wipes.1 Defendants deny the allegations about their flushable wipes and maintain that the products perform as advertised. There has been no finding of liability against any of the Defendants. Defendants have agreed to the Settlements to avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with continuing the case.

You are part of the Settlement Class if you own[ed] or operate[d] a sewage or wastewater conveyance and treatment plant, such as a municipality, authority or wastewater district in the United States whose system was in operation between January 6, 2018 and November 21, 2023.

To settle the lawsuit, brought by the Charleston Water System, Defendants have agreed to implement certain modifications to their business practices and have made certain representations and commitments with respect to their respective flushable wipes products. The details of these business practice modifications are set forth in the Stipulations which are located at www.charlestonwipessettlement.com.

If you are part of the Settlement Class, you will automatically receive the benefits of the Settlements. You may also object to the Settlements and/or Class Counsel’s request for attorneys’ fees and expenses of up to $1,900,000. You may retain and pay for an individual attorney, but you do not need to because Class Counsel is working on your behalf.
