  • Wal-Mart will pay the state of Connecticut $1.15 million to settle a 2001 lawsuit that charged the company with environmental violations at 20 Wal-Mart stores and two Sam’s Clubs.

    The company was charged with improperly storing sediments, fertilizers, oil and other potential pollutants in places where rain could wash them into nearby bodies of water, of selling an improper sewer additive at several stores, and of operating without the proper permits in certain locations.
