The Missouri Coalition for the Environment is working to protect the health of families who live near the smoldering and radioactive West Lake Landfill Superfund site in St. Louis County. We are part of a broad coalition that supports transferring jurisdiction of the site to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. MCE also supports the removal of the radioactive wastes from the unlined landfill because it is the safest long-term option for the St. Louis region.
