Pollution-control equipment that removes sulfur dioxide and hydrogen sulfide from emissions at U.S. Steel's Clairton Plant is back in operation, the Allegheny County Health Department said late Monday night.
In a prepared statement, a county spokesperson said the department was informed that two control rooms that were damaged by a fire Monday morning were returned to service.
"Accordingly, our inspectors will verify that all systems are back online (Tuesday) morning," the spokesperson said.
"Additionally, staff will be talking with officials at the plant about what occurred and building redundancies into their systems," the county said. "Additional information will be provided once the information is verified (Tuesday), and after the department has spoken with U.S. Steel officials."
