St. Louis area residents sue over radioactive material storage sites

http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/st-louis-area-residents-sue-over-radioactive-material-storage-sites/article_a09fa073-d19d-503f-9cf0-cf9fa60986a3.html

A business owner in Bridgeton and a homeowner in St. Ann have filed lawsuits seeking compensation for damages they say were caused by the negligent handling of radioactive waste at West Lake Landfill and at storage sites along Coldwater Creek in north St. Louis County.

The two lawsuits, which both seek class action status, were filed Tuesday in St. Louis County Circuit Court.

Among defendants named in the lawsuits are Republic Services, Exelon Corp., Cotter Corp. and the St. Louis Airport Authority.

"Defendants treated these hazardous, toxic, carcinogenic, radioactive wastes with about the same level of care that a reasonable person might give to common household garbage, dumping it without authority from the State of Missouri and in violation of law," the lawsuits contend.
