Bridgeton, MO (KTRS) Online threats prompted representatives from three federal agencies, including the EPA to skip a community meeting Monday night about the West Lake Landfill.
The “St. Louis Post-Dispatch” reports that the threats followed an article in the newspaper on Sunday that said concerns about radiation at the landfill in Bridgeton could be overblown.
EPA spokesperson Curtis Carey says the threats were made by one person on the West Lake Landfill Facebook group. The threats have been deleted.
The EPA says one comment read: “Let’s put these murderers and bribe-takers in the ground.” EPA, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry and the Army Corps of Engineers all canceled plans to send a representative to the meeting.
