(KMOV) -- Residents near the Westlake landfill say they have detected a rise in radiation levels in a ditch a mile away at the Bridgeton Municipal Athletic Complex.

The radiation tests were performed by a machine donated by an attorney suing the owners of the landfill.

Residents say they are trying to pressure the EPA to test areas outside the contaminated landfill.
