AK Steel Pollution

Mar 15, 2021

Two environmental groups plan to file a lawsuit against AK Steel alleging that the steel plant at the Ford Rouge plant in Dearborn, Michigan, has been far exceeding air pollution limits.

This pollution has been going on for a long time. And, at most, whoever has owned the steel division has had its wrist slapped with small fines. And yet it continues to pollute Southwest Dearborn, and impact the health of the steel division workers themselves.

Residents and community leaders in the area have stayed vigilant in fighting against this corporate pollution.
