EPA: No public risk at BMAC

BRIDGETON, Mo. – The latest round of tests at the Bridgeton Municipal Athletic Complex have found no public radiation risk, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

A group of moms using a donated scanner say they found elevated levels of radiation in a drainage ditch near the ball fields. The complex is less than a mile from the radioactive West Lake Landfill, where nuclear waste was dumped in the 1970s.

The EPA says it checked 58,000 spots around the 70 acre site last month, and found nothing dangerous.

Results on a round of soil samples are expected in July.
