After months of requesting that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers take the lead in resolving the issues surrounding two landfills in Bridgeton, it looks as though local residents will get at least part of what they've been demanding. EPA officials announced Friday that the Corps of Engineers will help construct an isolation barrier between an underground fire at the Bridgeton Landfill and radioactive materials in the adjacent West Lake Landfill.
Last week, Attorney General Chris Koster had urged the EPA to move quickly on the barrier.
The radioactive waste was dumped illegally in North County about 40 years ago. Environmental groups and residents have been calling for the Army Corps to take over the cleanup. Those calls became more urgent in recent months as the risk of the fire spreading became known.
