  • Homeowners here are suing Ford Motor Co. for groundwater contamination at the transmission plant they say has damaged their property values and their “ability to use and enjoy their homes.”
  • The suit comes after a recent settlement between Ford and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, in which Ford agreed to pay $45,000 to the agency, and to clean up any pollution caused by potentially cancer-causing chemicals sitting in the groundwater beneath the Livonia Transmission Plant.
  • Ford said tests showed those chemicals pose no health risk for residents, and drinking water is not at risk.
