   New air and water tests showed no health risk from the West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton.  That was the message from the EPA to the big – and sometimes rowdy – crowd Tuesday night at Pattonville High School.  

   Residents say they are concerned that the underground fire burning at the nearby Bridgeton Landfill could spread to radioactive waste buried in the 1970s at the West Lake facility.  About 650 came to Tuesday night's meeting, many demanding immediate action.  

   But EPA Region 7 Administrator Karl Brooks says preliminary studies show there is time to study the situation before making a decision.  "That event over there on the Bridgeton side does not threaten the West Lake Landfill," Brooks said.  "It gives us time to assess the science, take a look at the engineering and make good choices about it."

   Some residents want the radioactive materials removed.  Others favor a buyout.  

   Brooks says all options are on the table, but nothing will happen right away. 

 

U.S. House approves compromise bridge name

Wednesday, 26 June 2013 02:50 Published in Local News

   Local political leaders are it calling an impressive display of bipartisan support and compromise.  The U.S. House on Tuesday voted to name the new Interstate-70 bridge over the Mississippi River as the "Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge."  

   Missouri lawmakers had wanted to name the span after the Cardinal's legend.  Illinois lawmakers had wanted to name the bridge to honor veterans.  Tuesday's 395-to-2 House vote would do both.  

   The measure now moves on the U.S. Senate.
