State testing air around Bridgeton Landfill

State regulators have begun testing the air quality around the Bridgeton Landfill after serving the operator notice that odors related to smoldering waste deep underground are a nuisance and violate state law.

The order from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources requires Republic Services Inc., based in Phoenix, to pay for the air sampling.

The state issued the order on Friday, the same day that the St. Louis County Health Department conducted its annual compliance inspection of the landfill and measured odors in excess of the limits set forth in state law.

The county issued the company a notice of violation on Wednesday afternoon, said Health Department spokesman Craig LeFebvre.
