US Pipe Pollutes Bessemer Gardens
Residents in Bessemer Gardens have called many news outlets to get help in stopping the pollution that is coming from US Pipe. Becki Parsons says dust has covered her house, yard and cars with a thick, gray dust. A representative from the Jefferson County Health Department said it is the heaviest of particles that he had observed in nine previous visits to her home in the past 22 months. The health department has an investigation underway to see what parts of the plant the pollution is coming from and how to correct the problem. Plant manager, Tom Nicholson, said he apologized for the pollution and was going to make sure it didn't happen again.
