St. Louis County, MO (KTRS) A federal agency plans to study radiological contamination at a north St. Louis County creek that some residents are concerned may be linked to several cases of cancer.
The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry plans to gather information on contamination at Coldwater Creek for the next 18 to 24 months. The agency met with residents earlier this week.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District will host a public meeting on the
Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP) for Coldwater Creek Properties on

presentation will be followed by a brief question and answer session and breakout sessions to discuss
remediation at the Palm Drive Properties, Duchesne Park, and Archdiocese Property. The breakout
session will give the public an opportunity to address any specific issues or concerns with a FUSRAP
