The Cleveland-Cliffs Cleveland steel plant began operating in 1913 under the original name of Corrigan-McKinney Steel Co. It was owned by LTV Corp, then bought by ArcelorMittal, then passed into the hands of Cleveland-Cliffs after ArcelorMittal was acquired by Cleveland-Cliffs in December 2020.
In 2008, advocacy group Ohio Citizen Action filed a complaint with the EPA about the blast furnace. The group claimed former owner LTV Corp. nearly doubled the blast furnace's capacity during the 1980s without installing proper environmental controls.
In 2020, ArcelorMittal agreed to pay nearly $5 million to settle lawsuits which claimed that the company had violated the Clean Air Act at three separate facilities, including the Cleveland facility.
