It can feel like there’s an overwhelming amount of information about issues at the West Lake Landfill Superfund Site. We understand the feeling considering MCE has worked on radioactive waste issues in St. Louis for more than two decades. The EPA and Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) each have lead jurisdiction over different parts of the landfill.
- EPA oversees Operable Unit-1 (OU-1) and Operable Unit-3 (OU-3).
- DNR oversees Operable Unit-2 (OU-1) as well as stormwater pollution and air pollution permits for the landfill.
MCE breaks down the complexity of issues at West Lake Landfill by providing resources for you to better understand what has happened and will happen moving forward. We will continue to add more information as our new website is further developed.
