(KMOV.com) -- A Missouri state representative will hold an informational meeting for the public concerning the Bridgeton landfill Monday. This meeting comes on the heels of a visit from environmentalists with Erin Brockovich Saturday.

St. Charles state representative Bill Otto will host the meeting Monday night.

He will discuss the fire burning underground, radioactive waste and the lawsuit filed by Mo. Attorney General Chris Koster.

Saturday, high profile attorney, Tom Girardi with Erin Brockovich, conducted the meeting addressing environment concerns with Bridgeton residents.

Bridgeton residents said they are happy the landfill is receiving so much attention.

“It’s nice to have a fresh set of eyes,” said resident Dawn Chapman, “These people are used to this. This is good for us.”

The meeting Monday will begin at 7 p.m. at Pattonville High School at 2497 Creve Coeur Mill Road. Otto said he will have information from the Mo. Department of Natural Resources.
