Detection of the West Nile virus in Missouri and deaths due to the virus in other states have prompted the question what can be done to help prevent further spread of the disease. The Missouri Departments of Natural Resources and Health and Senior Services believe cleaning up waste tires and illegal dumpsites are a step in the right direction. Contact the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to report illegal dump sites.
