How you can help –
Contact your Federally Elected Officials, ask them to have this site moved from Superfund under the EPA to Formerly Utilized Sites Remediation Action Plan aka FUSRAP under the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers. This applies to all States, not just Missouri. The more voices of concern that are heard, the stronger the message will be that this site needs to be under the Army Corps. The meeting held on January 22nd further shows why this site should be moved from Superfund to FUSRAP.
