Wagner Statement on the EPA’s West Lake Proposal
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Ann Wagner (MO-02) released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced its cleanup plan for the West Lake Landfill:
"After years of broken promises and inaction by previous administrations, Administrator Pruitt and the EPA are proposing a viable, permanent solution for cleaning up the West Lake Landfill. I commend them for delivering on this promise to our community and prioritizing Missourians who have lived in fear and uncertainty for too long. The general public will now have the opportunity to review this proposal and share their thoughts and concerns.
“Today’s much anticipated announcement is a testament to the local leaders I have worked with since my first year in Congress to ensure the safety and well-being of the families surrounding the West Lake Landfill. Their tireless efforts have made this a top priority, and it is an honor to represent such a strong and committed community in Washington, D.C."
