A group of Mississippi Mills residents is suing the National Research Council for more than $40 million after residential wells were contaminated by chemicals originating from an NRC fire lab in their neighbourhood.

It's been almost a year since homeowners living near the fire safety testing facility on Ramsay Concession Road 8 in Mississippi Mills were told their water was contaminated and they should stop drinking it.

The water contained the chemicals often found in firefighting foams — chemicals that were tested in the NRC lab.
