Radiation contamination concerns after Cold Water Creek flooding in Hazelwood via Fox2

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Residents at a Hazelwood apartment complex woke up this morning to find their cars submerged after a nearby creek over flowed. There’s more to be worried about then just water damage from Cold Water Creek.

The water has receded, but it was a different story, when the parking lot filled with water overnight damaging vehicles. As the water went down we found crawdads  in the parking lot. Residents were using buckets trying to get the water out of their cars. This apartment complex sits next to Coldwater Creek.

Last year the Army Corps of Engineers confirmed that it had discovered what it described as low levels of radioactive contamination. The radioactive waste is the byproduct of uranium from the Manhattan Project that was stored near the airport. So this has only added to concerns for residents living near the creek.
