Officials with Republic Services say the smell at Bridgeton will get worse before it gets better.
Monday's rain pushed back the start of work to remove sections of concrete pipe in the landfill. Engineers say the pipe removal will make the ground in and around the landfill safer, but the smell will be worse while work is underway.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The federal Social Security Administration now says that its investigators were not able to read an electronic list of concealed gun permit holders from Missouri.
In an email Monday, a spokesman for the federal agency says it distributed incorrect information last week when it said the disk was read before it was destroyed. The agency's retraction came after Missouri Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer held a news conference Monday recounting what he had been told about the disk by the agency's inspector general.
The miscommunication highlights the confusion about an issue that has been a growing concern among Republican lawmakers. They fear gun owners' privacy rights were violated when the Missouri State Highway Patrol provided the list of permit holders to a federal investigator.

We will hear more from Scott Schnuck today in a you tube video about a credit and debit card breach. The grocery chain now says 2.4 million Schnucks customers may have been compromised between December of last year and March 2013.
Schnucks says only the card numbers and expiration dates were stolen, not the credit card holder's identity.
“On behalf of myself, the Schnuck family, and all of our 15,000 teammates, I apologize to everyone affected by this incident,” said Scott Schnuck in a press release. “Over the years, technology has helped us deliver superior customer service, but it also introduces risks that we have actively worked to manage through compliance audits, encryption technology and various other security measures.”
The company also sent news outlets a timeline showing what happened and when. The company says it was told of an issue on March 15, formed a response team on March 19, contacted police on the 20th, began to identify the problem on the 28th, but did not communicate any concern to customers until March 30.
According to the company, “if you used your card at any one of the 79 affected stores between December 2012 and March 29, 2013, your card could have been accessed.” Click here for the FULL LIST.
The company has declined to do interviews due to legal concerns over pending lawsuits. The company is preparing a video statement instead.
Schnucks has set up a call line for customers to use for any questions. The number is 1-888-414-8022. The line is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5p.m. and the weekend of April 20-21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
