February 26, 2015
The Saint Louis County Department of Health is launching a survey to assess the health of people living near the Bridgeton Landfill.
An underground fire has been smoldering at the Bridgeton Landfill since 2010, causing odors emanating from the landfill to increase.
Residents as far away as Maryland Heights and St. Charles have complained about the foul smells — and about symptoms such as burning eyes, sore throats, headaches, nausea and nose bleeds.
