(KMOV) – What would you do if water that smelled like gasoline was seeping from the ground into your neighborhood?
It’s happening in north St. Louis County, and residents want to know why it hasn’t been cleaned up.
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has investigated the problem that’s been around for 15 years, but no one has told residents the cause or a plan for cleanup.
It is believed that a closed gas station leaked gasoline over the years which migrated into the neighborhood and bubbles up days after a rain.
The Department of Natural Resources has referred the situation to the state attorney general’s office.
