There is no cost for the city to join the lawsuit. If a settlement is reached, the city would receive a portion of the settlement to help cover costs associated with reducing the PFAS levels in the city's water.
City officials say they are continuing to work on ways to remedy the issue.
Back in January, Sauk Rapids voted to join the class action lawsuit, which is currently moving through the federal court process.
