AK Steel to Pay $1.35 Million to Settle Alleged Air Pollution Violations at Dearborn Plan

AK Steel announced that it will pay $1.35 million to settle alleged air pollution violations at a Dearborn plant previously owned by the American subsidiary of Severstal. The Justice Department announced the agreement among the steelmaker, the federal government and the State of Michigan, saying it settles 42 violations alleged by the state Department of Environmental Quality and two notices issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency against Severstal North America. AK Steel announced last summer its intention to purchase Severstal's Dearborn coke-making facility and other assets for $700 million.

The consent decree requires the steelmaker to develop a process for managing environmental concerns at the plant, which includes outside auditing twice a year, as well as annual inspections of pollution control equipment.
