Nuclear waste expert to speak at West Lake Landfill
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A nationally-known expert on nuclear waste is set to speak tonight at a meeting about the controversial West Lake Landfill.
Robert Alvarez will speak at a meeting of the Missouri Coalition for the Environment. The EPA is monitoring tests at the landfill to see where a barrier wall should be built.
The wall would keep the smouldering fire in the Bridgeton landfill… from reaching radioactive waste in the nearby West Lake Landfill.
