West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton, Missouri contains massive amounts of illegally dumped nuclear weapons waste from the Manhattan Project – the secret U.S. military program created in 1942 to develop the atomic bomb. The landfill is not designed to hold nuclear waste and resides in a flood plain and near a heavily populated area.

There is also currently a huge subsurface fire in the adjacent Bridgeton Landfill! Experts warn the fire is dangerously close to the radioactive waste with the potential for radioactive fallout released in a smoke plume throughout the region if the two meet! St. Louis County has issued an emergency Shelter In Place/Evacuation Plan. Many citizens are totally unaware of this situation. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is in charge, but has yet to remedy the grave situation.
