The mayor of Portage is calling for several changes to the way ArcelorMittal operates. Last week, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management released an investigative report on the company’s August spill of cyanide and ammonia into a Lake Michigan waterway that killed about 3,000 fish.

Among other things, it showed that ArcelorMittal failed to notify IDEM and the public soon enough about problems at the plant.
