ACHD said the penalties were calculated under a 2019 settlement agreement between it and U.S. Steel (NYSE: X) and were due to alleged violations of air pollution control at the Clairton Coke Works during the first quarter of 2022.

The fines follow $859,300 in penalties against the company, under the same agreement, covering April through December 2021.
