In Weldon Spring, Missouri, there is a strange, grey, windblasted seven-storey pile of rocks. It's the Weldon Spring Site: a nuclear and toxic waste dump on the site of an old uranium processing factory. And you can walk on it: it's technically a tourist attraction. That was going to be the whole of my video... and then I did some more research.

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.
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.
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...
:) It seems they writhe, invisage a senseless waste of time... its seem they think of themsleves better when they hide.. behind the sense of fear but fear dont fool the blind... I could believe, but i'd only waste my time/mind... i'd only waste my time/mind x 4
Visiting the Weldon Spring Site & Interpretive Center and the August Busch Memorial Conservation Area in Saint Charles county. I explore a radioactive waste containment cell and go in search of WWII era bunkers that were built for the storage of TNT. 100 bunkers were built in this area.
