Radioactive Waste Found at Missouri Elementary School

According to a recent assessment by environmental investigative consultants, there is significant radioactive contamination at an elementary school in a suburb of St. Louis where nuclear bombs were manufactured during World War II.

The waste was deposited in locations close to the Missouri River and the St. Louis Lambert International Airport. For more than 20 years, the Corps has been cleaning up the creek.

Inhaling or ingesting these radioactive substances could result in serious harm. “A significant remedial program will be required to bring conditions at the school in line with expectations,” according to the report.
