Dust problemsclaymont resident delores k. ?Dee?Whildin, a leader in her community?S more than decade-Long fight for tighter pollution controls at the steel plant, expressed concern for workers this morning, but also said a closing would mean new concerns for surrounding neighborhoods.
Under past ownership the plant for years rained fine slag dust onto surrounding streets.For a time, the site ranked among the nation?S top sources of airborne mercury pollution because mercury-Filled automobile switches were finding their way into melt furnaces.Community members, frustrated over slow responses from regulators, turned for help in recent years to a california-Based environmental group, global community monitor, to document and track plant releases.
Despite reforms, cleanup orders and a past department of natural resources and environmental control threat to order a shutdown, whildin said, some problems have resurfaced in recent months, along with an upturn in late-Night noise and operations.
?We would be loaded with questions if they say they?Re closing permanently?Said whildin, a founding member of the evraz claymont steel dust study team. ?Up until now we haven?T heard anything, but we?Ve been getting hit with it again.The guy next door to me has a brand new car and he?S beside himself?Because of abrasive dust found on the finish.
Whildin said that she recently took a sample of gritty dust from her own car to be checked.Community members in the past have answered skeptics, including some regulators, by using magnets to sweep metallic soot samples from porches and vehicles.
