In October 2022, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maine approved a Consent Decree that requires Mallinckrodt US LLC (Mallinckrodt) to pay a minimum of $187 million (and possibly an additional $80 million) to remediate mercury contamination in the Penobscot River Estuary.
Under the Consent Decree, two trusts have been created to accelerate recovery of Maine’s largest river and provide meaningful and lasting benefit for the surrounding communities and environment.
