Director Rebecca Cammisa St. Louis has a little-known nuclear past as a uranium-processing center for the atomic bomb. Government and corporate negligence led to the dumping of Manhattan Project uranium, thorium, and radium, thus contaminating North St. Louis suburbs, specifically in two communities: those along Coldwater Creek, where residents have high rates of very rare cancers, birth defects, and various autoimmune disorders that are potentially linked to ionizing radiation poisoning; and in Bridgeton, adjacent to the West Lake-Bridgeton landfill, where an uncontrolled subsurface fire has been moving toward an area where the radioactive waste was buried.
