Algoma Steel says a gas leak is responsible for loud noises emanating this week from the steel mill, but the problem should be resolved quickly.

"If you come down to my area (Bayview) it sounds like there is an airport and the airplanes are just circling and never land," one reader tells SooToday.

"This goes on day and night for over a week now, I haven’t slept peacefully in a week."

"I can confirm there is a leak on the blast furnace gas uptake," says Brenda Stenta, Algoma Steel's manager of communications and branding.

"It is slated for repair during our scheduled maintenance outage which commences tomorrow," Stenta says.

"This leak is not hazardous but we do acknowledge that it is a nuisance noise and we apologize for any inconvenience it may be causing."
