The Severstal steel plant complex in Dearborn has been cited 37 times for violating its current state air quality permit. Now the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality says it had set some standards too high. Two Detroit lawmakers have asked the EPA to step in.
Today, we heard more about what the recent permitting process could mean for the people who live around the Severstal facility.
