Our operating facilities use water from both ground and surface sources to process our products and control fugitive dust emissions. We understand the significant need and opportunity we have to protect this finite resource.

Water conservation is an important component to our management approach. We recognize that sustainable management of our water resource is integral to our continued ability to operate in the communities that we serve.

Reusing wastewater as part of sustainable water management allows water to remain as an alternative water source for human activities. This can reduce scarcity and alleviate pressures on groundwater and other natural water bodies. The following chart shows the high percentage of water that is recycled at each of Cliffs’ active taconite ore processing and pelletizing facilities.
