Missouri's top law enforcement official wants the owner of a St. Louis landfill to provide more details about a underground smoldering fire at the site which could threaten radioactive waste buried nearby.  

On Thursday, Attorney General Chris Koster asked the St. Louis County Circuit Court to order Republic Services to provide additional monitoring data related to the Bridgeton Landfill.  

Koster says the state has asked Republic Services to supply data and maps showing the concentration of carbon monoxide at various locations in an effort to track movement of the fire.

He says the company has not supplied comprehensive data for the north part of the site, nearest the nuclear material.  

A spokesman says the company expects to provide additional monitoring data that it believes will validate that the site is safe.

MSD asks for residents' help

Friday, 10 January 2014 10:19 Published in Local News

Heavy rain today (Friday) and continued snow melt are expected to tax local storm water drainage systems. The National Weather Service in St. Louis says streams and creeks in rural areas will rise, but should be able to handle the run-off.  It is municipal sewer systems that could back up.  Ice-clogged sewers could cause localized urban flooding.  

The Metropolitan Sewer District is asking residents to first try and clear some of the snow or debris from the sewer openings before calling them. With 130-thousand inlets to manage, MSD says it is impossible to attend to all of them.  Authorities also remind motorists not to drive on flooded roads.

Mayor wants plowing feedback from city residents

Friday, 10 January 2014 09:15 Published in Local News

The controversy surrounding the lack of plowing of St. Louis city side streets has pushed the issue front and center following last weekend's snowstorm. In response, not only were plows on the streets overnight, but now city residents are being asked to log-in online to voice their opinion on whether the City should plow residential side streets.

Officials say it is important to collect data because not everyone is in favor of plowing the side streets for fear of getting snowed under.  

The Mayor wants to know more before making wide-sweeping policy changes and urges feedback from residents. More information is available on the city's website at: stlouis-mo.gov. Click on the "Mayor Slay" tab to register your opinion.
