MSD asks for residents' help

Heavy rain today (Friday) and continued snow melt are expected to tax local storm water drainage systems. The National Weather Service in St. Louis says streams and creeks in rural areas will rise, but should be able to handle the run-off.  It is municipal sewer systems that could back up.  Ice-clogged sewers could cause localized urban flooding.  

The Metropolitan Sewer District is asking residents to first try and clear some of the snow or debris from the sewer openings before calling them. With 130-thousand inlets to manage, MSD says it is impossible to attend to all of them.  Authorities also remind motorists not to drive on flooded roads.

The Metropolitan Sewer District is embarking on a 23-year, $4.7 billion plan to improve water quality in the St. Louis area.
 
Most residents won't see the aggressive program of maintenance and repair. Crystal Howard, a spokesperson for MSD, joined McGraw Thursday morning and said the public can help with the project. Howard is asking residents to keep food scraps, oils, and grease--or FOG--out of the sewer system. She encourages everyone to keep a can next to the kitchen sink and instead of dumping oil and grease down the drain, pour it into the can.
 
MSD started the FOG campaign in November and Howard said the results were great, "We did this initiative just before Thanksgiving, we asked everybody--reminded them not to do that. We have had a 10-year low on backups for November"
 
MSD is offering free lids for grease cans. They can be picked up at MSD Headquarters at 2350 Market Street.

The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District has installed temporary pumps to help limit untreated sewage that's been seeping into the flooded Mississippi River since Sunday.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports all of the pumps are expected to be working by today.

Two pumps at the Bissell Point treatment plant failed Sunday, leading to the discharge of 105 million gallons of sewage daily into the river.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Millions of gallons of raw sewage are pouring into the Mississippi River from a St. Louis wastewater treatment plant where two of three pumps have failed.

Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District spokesman Lance LeComb says the pumps went out on Sunday night, and it's unclear how quickly they may be fixed or replaced.

LeComb says the plant takes in 110 million gallons of sewage a day. While acknowledging the spillage's seriousness, he says the sewage that makes its way into the river is being diluted by the rain-swollen waterway.

He says the spill has been reported to the state.

The spill isn't likely to affect the river's recreational users, given that the currents are dangerously elevated. But many communities downriver from St. Louis draw their drinking water from the river.
