FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - Three lawsuits filed in Sebastian County this week target the Whirlpool Corporation, which operated a plant at Fort Smith until a year ago. Homeowners and landlords are worried about a chemical used at the plant between the 1960s and the 1980s. The state and Whirlpool reached an agreement on remediation efforts in 2001, but Whirlpool this year asked for a ban on new wells near the site. The plaintiffs are seeking funds to restore their property and also punitive damages.
