In the 1920's through the 1950's two companies had been dumping asbestos waste illegally in a creek along the Mississippi river. Though both these companies are closed now, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources has done little to clean up the area. Today this is one of the populated suburbs of St. Louis and community leaders suspect that a higher number of cancer cases are being reported from this area.
