BRIDGETON, MO (KTVI) – A judge dismisses a class action lawsuit, filed by Bridgeton residents, against Republic Services.

The federal suit claimed radiation from the West Lake Landfill had contaminated nearby homes and businesses. Subsequent testing did not show contamination levels high enough to a reach federal standards for damages.

A spokesperson for the landfill operator says it is a shame that ball games were cancelled, local businesses lost revenue, and a community was scared for four months.
