CLAYMONT, Del. (AP) — Delaware officials say they are working on a new pollution control settlement for Evraz Claymont Steel.

Natural Resources and Environmental Control Secretary Collin O'Mara told lawmakers recently that company officials appear ready to make new investments to control metallic dust and other problems at the site.

Residents have complained for years about abrasive pollution that periodically spreads across the community from the specialty slab-steel mill.

In a statement, company officials say work to reduce the mill's "environmental footprint" is continuing.

Sen. Catherine Cloutier says law firms have begun canvassing neighborhoods inquiring about complaints that could lead to legal action against the company.
