Mittal Steel swipe sampling

back to Ohio Citizen Action


On March 7, 2006 Sandy Buchanan and Angela Oster visited the home of Arlene Green and her family. The Greens are neighbors of Mittal Steel. They report what they call "metal showers" and their home being covered in soot. Last Friday's metal shower was the worst yet. Arlene said, "It looked like a snow storm. There were big flakes out there. You could feel them hitting your face." The way that the plant is situated in the valley means that its stacks are at the same level as the homes on Independence Road.
