AK Steel seeks EPA injunction

AK Steel said today it is seeking an injunction against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over its order to reduce emissions into Dicks Creek in Middletown.

The steelmaker's request was filed with U.S. District Court in Cincinnati, according to company Vice President Alan McCoy. In a statement, he said a study commissioned by the company shows creek contaminants to be "10 to 100 times below" levels the EPA categorizes as "significant."

The agency had filed a lawsuit in June 2000, saying the chemicals posed an "an imminent and substantial endangerment."

McCoy said the company-sponsored study examined soil, water, sediment, ecological, biological and toxicity levels at Dicks Creek. AK Steel draws cooling water from the Great Miami River and discharges it after use through permitted outfalls in the creek, he said.
