ISG Cleveland

What's the problem?
The ISG Cleveland Works is the largest single polluter of the air and water in Cuyahoga County, according to reports submitted to the Ohio EPA. ISG’s air pollution, visible to anyone driving on the freeways past downtown Cleveland, amounted to 76 million pounds in 2003 (Source: ISG 2003 Title V fee emissions report). The plant sits on the Cuyahoga River, and discharges 100,000 pounds of pollution per year into the river (Source: Ohio EPA Toxics Release Inventory, 2001). Because the plant is so close to Lake Erie, both its air and water pollution can endanger the lake. Since ISG reopened the steel mills last year, pollution problems in nearby neighborhoods have included metal flakes and soot covering people’s cars and homes, nauseating odors including strong sulfur smells, loud noises, and visible orange and yellow clouds coming from the stacks.
