AK Steel contributes to clean up

AK Steel Corp. is one of 36 companies that have agreed to clean up the Breslube Penn Superfund Site in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, a site the US Environmental Protection Agency says includes hazardous contaminants that could impact public health and the environment. According to a settlement filed in US District Court in the Western District of Pennsylvania, the companies have agreed to fund and/or complete a USD 12 million cleanup at the seven-acre site. They have also agreed to reimburse the US EPA USD 3 million in past costs at the site, and to pay for EPA’s future costs. Of the 36 settling companies, nine have agreed to conduct the EPA approved cleanup, including Alcoa Inc, CBS Corp., Elliot Co., Exxon Mobil Corp., Ford Motor Co., General Motors Corp., Hussey Copper Ltd and US Steel. Under the settlement, these companies will remove oil and other pollutants and then install a cap and slurry wall containment system to prevent the release of any additional contaminants. These companies will also remediate the groundwater outside the containment area.
