This web page was created to support EPA in investigating a small number of residential properties in the Spanish Village subdivision of Bridgeton, Missouri. EPA has made available on this website information about the investigation and supporting data quality assurance documentation.

In November 2016, a lawsuit was filed on behalf of a family residing in the Spanish Village neighborhood of Bridgeton, MO. The lawsuit alleged that radioactive contamination consistent with uranium processing waste was present in the home.

Out of an abundance of caution, EPA is conducting a focused investigation in response to concerns raised by residents of Spanish Village. EPA plans to sample two to three homes during this focused investigation.
