Big name environmental group headed to St. Louis

Wednesday, 12 June 2013 11:29 Published in Local News

The team of an environmentalist made famous by Julia Roberts is coming to St. Louis. 

A spokesman for the Missouri Coalition for the Environment told KTRS News that a team representing Erin Brockovich will be in north county to address concerns surrounding the Bridgeton Landfill.

The smoldering event underneath the landfill has residents worried it could threaten nuclear waste buried next door at the West Lake Landfill. Residents and environmentalists hope the Brockovich name will draw attention to the issue. Recent tests done by the EPA suggest the underground fire would take 10 years to reach the nuclear waste.

Missouri health officials and the state's Department of Natural Resources are monitoring the smoldering closely.
