This page provides citizens with access to pertinent information and online forms regarding ongoing compliance issues and activities related to a subsurface smoldering event and associated odors around Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill at 13570 St. Charles Rock Road in Bridgeton.

Recent Activities

May 31, 2016 - On Wednesday, June 1, Bridgeton Landfill plans to conduct repair work on a condensate drain located in the amphitheater area (west side) of the South Quarry. While Bridgeton Landfill is planning the work activity to be conducted in a manner to minimize odors, there remains the potential this work could generate odors noticeable off the landfill property.

May 24, 2016 - Starting later in the week, initial field work for the installation of the Heat Extraction System in the neck area will begin.

The department recently added a sulfur dioxide air monitor to the existing Rider Trail, I-70 monitoring site. The addition of a sulfur dioxide monitor at this site is to evaluate sulfur dioxide levels in the general area. Any sulfur dioxide concentrations monitored at this site may be due to several emissions sources in the area. If the monitor records sulfur dioxide at levels of concern, the department will gather additional information to try to determine which sources are causing or contributing to the levels of concern. The department will evaluate the levels recorded after one year of operation and decide whether or not it is appropriate to continue operating a sulfur dioxide monitor at this location.

The department maintains a summary report, which is updated weekly and is available at See the listing for “Rider Trail, I-70” for SO2 data from this monitor.
