West Lake Landfill Cleanup

We have written previously about the problems associated with the West Lake Landfill near Bridgeton. Extremely toxic waste was dumped there at the time of the Manhattan Project creating the atomic bomb. Activists have been bringing action for years in an effort to get the site remediated.

The federal EPA has proposed a major but incomplete cleanup to the site. We understand they are proposing cleaning up 70% of the toxic site and removing the radiation. Environmental groups are looking for a more complete cleanup.

We regard these efforts as a good start but not enough. The whole site needs to be remediated and homeowners moved. Written by Paul Dribin
