Of course, if that happens it will be past the replacement guarantee expiration.
I've been watching one near my property (not mine) that was a replacement and the top is already completely yellowed and curled. It's so sad to watch this process seemingly start all over again. I sure wish this junk in our soils would disappear! We still don't know for certain when the impact of this toxin will finally be no more.
Tomorrow, June 28, is the last day to opt-out of the class action settlement if a person believes it is not sufficient for their property to be made 100% whole. Looks like more are opting out. Here's another report: http://www.watchlistnews.com/2013/06...on-settlement/
Starbuy - Have you gotten any indication from any attorney that they have accomplished anything beyond what is in the proposed settlement agreement?
Any attorney that I have talked to has not been able to offer me any solid evidence that they have had any success in negotiating with DuPont. Without some evidence that they can improve on the settlement agreement, it seems like a long road down the legal path, with an unknown outcome. For me and our community, that is not an attractive option.
