Springfield & Chatham Reach Tentative Settlement
Springfield and Chatham hope to approval a final settlement in the coming month regarding a water contract dispute between the two communities.
This will put an end to a lawsuit over Chatham's decision to break its water contract with CWLP.
Under the deal, Chatham will pay Springfield a half million dollars in damages and it will pay the city $200,000 for a long term lease of ground where Chatham has a pump station.
In addition, Chatham will allow Springfield to transport water through Chatham's water system to Loami.
