North St. Louis County residents have filed a second lawsuit alleging that nuclear waste in Coldwater Creek, which is partially contained in the City of Hazelwood has caused their various illnesses including cancer, and for some death.

About the Lawsuits

Both lawsuits allege exposure to radioactive waste the Mallinckrodt chemical company produced, is the reason for the health issues. The second lawsuit includes a group of 16 people from Hazelwood, Florissant, Spanish Lake and St. Ann.

According to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court on Tuesday, nuclear waste was dumped near Lambert Saint Louis International Airport and contaminated Coldwater Creek starting in the 1940s through the 1950s. The area is considered an Environmental Protection Agency Superfund site.
