   As the weather heats up with the start of summer tomorrow, many Missouri residents will head to their state park beaches.  But the Department of Natural Resources says a half-dozen of those beaches are closed.  

   Five state park swimming beaches were closed after tests this week showed high levels of bacteria.  A sixth beach - at Mark Twain State Park - remains closed because of flooding.  

   DNR officials say the beach at Harry S. Truman State Park and the Grand Glaize beach at the Lake of the Ozarks are among those that are off limits due to bacteria.  Other beaches closed include the Pittsburg beach at Pomme de Terre, St. Joe's State Park in Park Hills and Wakonda in northeastern Missouri.

Festus lead cleanup deal in the works

   Festus homeowners are anxious to learn the details of a plan to clean up lead contamination in their yards from a nearby scrap metal recycling center.  But residents learned last night they'll have to wait until a deal is finalized between the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and MW Recycling which operates the Shapiro Brothers scrap yard.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that elevated lead levels were found in 16 yards, with as many as 15 more still to be tested.  Water tests in a nearby creek also showed lead and cadmium contamination.  

   The company will pay for and conduct the remediation operations with DNR oversight.

Missouri's Department of Natural Resources is asking the state attorney general's office to consider legal action against the owners of a Bridgeton landfill. A smoldering fire at the site has been spewing noxious fumes that local residents complain is literally making their eyes water.

NR Director Sara Parker Pauley sent a letter Thursday asking the attorney general’s agricultural and environment division to "institute appropriate legal action" against the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill on St. Charles Rock Road. The move comes of the heels of a lawsuit filed by residents against Republic Services, which owns the 52-acre site just north of Lambert Airport.

The Phoenix-based company says they've been cooperating with state and local officials to deal with the problems.
