    Yes, they can be forced to pay damages for the people that their pollutant effects. However, it is often very difficult to prove causality between the chemicals in the water and the illness of the people. Cancer takes a long time to develop and often signs don’t manifest until long after the chemical has left the body. Additionally, this type of testing costs thousands of dollars and usually the damages that people are suing for don’t amount to much after legal fees and testing.
