The EPA is set to reveal the results of testing at the St. Louis County West Lake Landfill superfund site that is home to radioactive waste. A discussion of the agency's findings is scheduled for tonight at Pattonville High School. In a previous meeting, many residents said they were unhappy with how the waste is being handled and want the EPA to change its stance that the landfill isn't a threat to people in the area.
The material was part of a World War Two uranium processing operation and was dumped without authorization. Last year's EPA testing of the site showed radium levels higher than the maximum threshold for groundwater, but the agency said those areas were "isolated" and the area remains safe.
