The federal Chemical Safety Board is coming to Charleston next week to release findings about a New Cumberland metal recycling plant explosion that killed three workers in December 2010.
In March, metal recycler AL Solutions in New Cumberland settled to pay a $100,000 civil penalty to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and a $97,000 penalty to the U.S. Department of Labor.
The settlement requires AL Solutions to process or dispose of 2.4 million pounds of titanium and zirconium stored at two facilities. It also must implement safety procedures for the New Cumberland plant.
