EPA reiterates creek warnings

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency this afternoon urged the public to continue heeding its advisories regarding Dicks Creek in Middletown.

EPA Director Christopher Jones made the statement following AK Steel's release this week of a study that concluded contaminants in the creek do not pose a health risk.

"It is premature to draw any conclusions," Jones said today. "I urge the public to take appropriate precautions until the health agencies are satisfied that health threat does not exist."

AK Steel has filed an injunction against the EPA and its order to reduce emissions into Dicks Creek. The company said its study shows contamination there to be "10 to 100 times below" levels the EPA categorizes as "significant."

Fish consumption and contact advisories have been in effect there since 1995. AK Steel draws cooling water from the Great Miami River and discharges it after use through permitted outfalls in Dicks Creek.
