WBOI reported that US Steel had yet another oil leak on Friday. An official with the northwest Indiana company says it found a light, intermittent oil sheen near one of its pipes that discharges into Lake Michigan waterways. Ms Natalie Johnson is the executive director of the environmental group Save the Dunes. She says big spills in the recent past, like US Steel's spill of the cancer-causing chemical hexavalent chromium, have put people in the area on high alert. She said “It's very possible that there are other incidences on a much smaller scale that happen more common than what Save the Dunes or the public is really aware of.”

This comes just weeks after another leak from US Steel and a chemical spill from ArcelorMittal that killed 3,000 fish. Residents and environmentalists are hoping this won’t become the new normal.
