EPA to test for radiation at West Lake Landfill

BRIDGETON, Mo. (KSDK) –The Environmental Protection Agency has agreed to test for radiation outside the West Lake Landfill.

This news comes after a group of neighbors announced that if the EPA wasn't going to do it, they were going to test for radiation themselves.

A lawyer donated $16,000 to help them buy a "mobile radiation detector."

The EPA insists the radioactive waste at West Lake is not a threat to the surrounding area. Testing will begin in less than six months.

The community group is holding an informational meeting Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. at the Union Hall on Hollenburg Drive in Bridgeton.
