Four companies have agreed to pay a $77.6 million settlement to clean up and investigate contaminated groundwater at a pair of Superfund sites in Los Angeles County.

Montrose Chemical Corp. of California, Bayer CropScience Inc., TFCF America Inc. and Stauffer Management Co. LLC will pay to address contamination at former pesticide and rubber manufacturing sites — the Montrose Chemical Corp. Superfund and Del Amo Superfund sites.
