Wheeling Pittsburgh cited by EPA

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 has cited Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel Corp. (WPSC) for alleged clean-air violations at the company’s steel mills in Steubenville and Mingo Junction, Ohio.

EPA alleges that WPSC exceeded limits on opacity, or the amount of light obscured by particulates (smoke, dust, ash), from several processes at the mill. In addition, EPA said WPSC exceeded limits on sulfur dioxide emissions.

These are preliminary findings of violations. To resolve them, EPA may issue a compliance order, assess an administrative penalty or bring suit against the company. WPSC has 30 days from receipt of the notice to meet with EPA to discuss resolving the allegations.
