The EPA is being asked to contract directly with the Army Corps of Engineers to handle any and all remediation needed at the West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton.
Some in state legislature say new EPA clean air proposal goes too far.
Mounting public pressure for the removal of nuclear waste from the West Lake Landfill is the topic, as the Missouri Congressional delegation meets about what to do.
More than fifty people have posted written complaints about the smell neighborhood activist, Dawn Champman, describes as “burning tire, rubber, even a little bit of raw gasoline or kerosene.”
The EPA will be digging up to 80 feet deep to find out if radioactive waste from the West Lake Landfill has migrated closer to an underground fire at the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill.
The new testing will include drilling up to 80 feet in the ground to determine if any dirt near the landfill includes radioactive material.
The radioactive dirt was found about 30 feet below the surface, in an area where landfill owner Republic Services want to dig a firebreak trench.
