EPA fines Alro Steel $120k


Jackson-based Alro Steel will pay a $120,000 fine for failing to disclose information about hazardous chemicals at four of its facilities, including one in Lansing.

Federal law requires companies give state and local authorities an inventory of its hazardous chemicals. Environmental Protection Agency officials say in case of a fire or other emergency, responders need to know about chemicals for public safety purposes. Alro's Lansing location is at 1800 West Willow Street.
