Landfill cleanup costs

Bill transferring West Lake landfill oversight to Corps of Engineers won't pass Congress
http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-...84818.html
Quote:On Tuesday, a Bridgeton couple filed a lawsuit against private companies associated with management of West Lake and the adjacent Bridgeton Landfill and the complex’s history as a disposal site for radioactive waste.

Michael and Robbin Dailey alleged that recent tests revealed unacceptable levels of radioactivity in and around their home a half mile from the dump.

The EPA reiterated that it had no evidence that radioactive material was leaving the landfill.

The bill shifting the cleanup to the Corps had bipartisan sponsorship from St. Louis-area members of Congress as well as activists involved with the waste site.

Editorial: Residents near Bridgeton and West Lake landfills need relief
http://www.stltoday.com/news/opinion/col...bc490.html
Quote:Michael and Robbin Dailey of Bridgeton filed a lawsuit Tuesday against companies operating the West Lake Landfill because tests they had done on their house show radioactivity levels up to 1,000 times higher than naturally occurring “background” levels. Forget the glow-in-the-dark jokes, the Daileys fear for their health and the value of their tidy ranch-style house.

The companies involved and the federal government must take responsibility for the health and welfare of residents in the region. These people have been waiting for too long.
