In a report issued today, here are some excerpts from the news report attached. This includes not only Cold Water Creek it is all of North St. Louis County and yes, this includes the communites around West Lake Landfill – 63043 and 63044:

“The Health Department does not want the study to focus on just cancer rates, but an entire range of health problems associated with radiation exposure.”

“People have a right to know if the environment they live in is safe for them and their families,” Dr. Dolores J. Gunn, director of the Saint Louis County Department of Health, said in a press release.

“We need to go beyond the years 1996 to 2011 and beyond just cancer rates to develop a more complete picture of what the people in and around Coldwater Creek are dealing with,” said Dr. Gunn. “We also need to determine if people are still being exposed to any environmental dangers,” she added.

Please send a Thank you to the St. Louis County Health Department for recognizing the health issues of our community.
