  HAMMOND, Ind. - U.S. Steel will pay more than $1.2 million in a civil penalty and various federal agency reimbursements for costs and damages. This after one of its northwestern Indiana plants discharged wastewater containing a potentially carcinogenic chemical into a tributary of Lake Michigan.

The Environmental Protection Agency says water sampling in Lake Michigan and a tributary shows no significant discharge of a potentially carcinogenic chemical from a U.S. Steel Corp. wastewater spill in northern Indiana.
