BREAKING: U.S. Steel Fined Nearly $2 Million for 362 Air Quality Violations at Clairton Coke Works

Updated: Feb 29

The Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) today fined U.S. Steel nearly $2 million for 362 pushing violations that occurred at its Clairton Coke Works facility between March 16, 2022, and Dec. 31, 2023.

GASP staff is currently reviewing the Feb. 26 enforcement order, which we encourage you to read here.

“We are in no way shocked by this news, and our neighbors in the Mon Valley probably aren’t, either” GASP Executive Director Patrick Campbell said. “U.S. Steel has been a bad neighbor for decades, and this is just the latest chapter in how the company continues to fail the communities in which it operates.”

He continued:

“As the order states, this is the eighth enforcement action ACHD has issued against U.S. Steel in just the past two years. That’s a pathetic record. Allegheny County residents - especially those in the Mon Valley - deserve better. We hope to continue to see vigorous enforcement when it comes to industrial bad actors like U.S. Steel.”
