The CDC has opened an investigation in North St. Louis County, where a total of twelve sites have been found to have low levels of radiological contamination. Vanita Nair reports residents in the area believe the hot spots are making them sick.
There is growing fear in a suburban St. Louis community over a local landfill containing nuclear waste left over from the Cold War. The radioactive material was dumped there illegally in the 1970s. There's also a "hot spot" burning underground in a second landfill, just three football fields away. Vinita Nair reports from the West Lake landfill in Bridgeton, Missouri.
Nuclear waste illegally dumped in a Missouri landfill during the 1970s may be under threat from an underground fire that's been burning at the landfill for five years. Worried residents are fired up as well. Vinita Nair has the story.

On Tuesday the U.S. government said it was delaying indefinitely its proposal for how to clean up or seal off radioactive soil buried in a St. Louis-area landfill adjacent to another waste site. An underground fire has been smoldering there for several years. The postponement by the Environmental Protection Agency drew an outcry from local officials angry at the potential public health hazard posed by the site. The agency cited lags in receiving "technical documents" needed to formulate its plan. By the end of this year, a remediation plan for the West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton, Missouri, about 20 miles northeast of St. Louis, had been expected from the EPA. The agency said it decided to "extend the timeline" to allow for further documentation and review by experts. No new deadline was se...

http://undergroundworldnews.com A Missouri couple says their home is contaminated with dangerously high levels of radioactive waste left over from the US government’s second world war-era atomic weapons program. In a lawsuit filed in the St Louis County circuit court on Tuesday, Robbin and Mike Dailey of Bridgeton say dust samples collected from their kitchen and basement were found to contain the radioactive element thorium-230 at levels about 200 times higher than normal “background” levels. In a move they hope shines a light on the continuing impact of the country’s early nuclear weapons program on their midwestern city, the Daileys named nine companies in their lawsuit that they say are responsible for decades of negligence that led to the contamination of their property. Atomic Cit...
The Volunteer Programs Division of Columbia's Community Development Department offered up a learning opportunity for students at the 2017 Missouri Scholars Academy (MSA). It took 20 volunteers from MSA a little over and hour to retrieve the recyclables from the trash. The containers retrieved from City Hall fill 3 large trash bags. A waste audit is a physical analysis of a facilities waste stream. It identifies waste diversion opportunities and provides a baseline for change. It is an excellent opportunity for hands on learning about where trash goes once it is dispose of, why recycling and composting are important, and what percentage of their trash could be diverted from the landfill. It is an eyeopening experience for everyone who participates, making a huge impact and is an effective...
