Republic required to provide CO data for Bridgeton landfill

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KSDK) - In wake of a decision on Friday from St. Louis County Circuit Court Judge Michael Jamison, public and local first responders will have carbon monoxide data for the Bridgeton Landfill within 35 days, according to a news release.

Jamison accepted an agreement between Attorney General Chris Koster's office and Republic Services that required the latter to provide carbon monoxide data for all extraction wells located in the north quarry – notably the Bridgeton Landfill.

The hope is that analysts can use this data to better under the location and movement of the smoldering event at the site.

"Access to this data is critical to get the most accurate picture of the underground fire," Koster said in a news release.

This is an interim agreement, meaning that the submission of carbon monoxide data beyond June 20 will be subject to another round of negotiations.

Until then, data will be submitted in 60 days intervals starting on Feb. 20.
