Anything over the St. Charles County side of the Missouri river wouldn't be my first choice (bridge traffic onto the St. Louis side in the morning for one), but that's just me

A couple of issues I have with Weldon Spring in particular- are the fact that I am pretty sure a lot of it was under water during the flood of '93 (it wasn't developed out then like it is now), although someone who's been in St. Louis longer than I have would probably be able to verify this.

There is also the controversy over the radiation contamination in Weldon Spring: Report on cancer risk from Weldon Spring site assailed : Lifestyles

The government report released said that the risk wasn't any higher than anywhere else in Missouri- but it's been an ongoing issue since a lot of people believe the government's data used to create the report was flawed.

The radiation contamination risk from St. Louis's role in the Manhattan Project during WWII is actually a big deal in a number of areas of St. Louis. The Bridgeton landfill in North County is an issue, as is Cold Water Creek (also in North County).

The EPA and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is apparently going to be doing soil testing in my area (Florissant) over the next few years to determine contamination levels- however, we knew that there might be some sort of a risk when we bought here. It's just something to keep in mind though, because I know that they contaminated quite a large area of Weldon Spring during WWII (there was a processing plant for radioactive materials there during and after the War).
