St. Louis County to launch health survey of residents near the Bridgeton Landfill

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. http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/st-louis-county-launch-health-survey-residents-near-bridgeton-landfill

I thought that having posted it in the Missouri group, it would have been clear.
