Providing Independent and Intelligent Insight on St. Louis Public Policy Issues

West Lake Landfill

Thanks to the efforts of David Behrens, I am becoming more aware of this situation and do not like what I see. This is an EPA designated superfund site in Bridgeton that has been getting attention and negative comments for some time. There have been fires burning consistently for years and people living amidst the radioactive landfill. Republic Corporation who also picks up garbage and recycling dumps their trash in the fill which has been contaminated by the sludge from enriched uranium. My understanding is the sludge is then given to MSD who treats it and dumps it in the Mississippi River. The federal EPA has refused to offer buyouts and relocation for residents and full cleanup of the site. Written by Paul Dribin
