Public Hearing For U.S. Steel Coke Batteries Scheduled

The Allegheny County Health Department will hold a public hearing on July 29th at 6:30 p.m. at the Clairton Municipal Building regarding the proposed installation of a new coke oven battery for the U.S. Steel Clairton Coke Works. U.S. Steel has postponed the actual installation of the batteries for now because of economic concerns but plans on finishing the project once the economy rebounds. U.S. Steel must shut down six of their older batteries as mandated under a consent order and agreement. Anyone wanting to testify at the hearing must register by 4 p.m. on Tuesday the 28th.
