ST. LOUIS COUNTY – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has released photos from a leachate release last month.

The release happened Dec. 12, 2013 after a pump malfunctioned at Bridgeton Landfill during freezing temperatures.

According to the DNR's website, staff at the landfill cleaned the area.

The photos were sent to NewsChannel 5 by an activist who lives near the landfill.
