The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) is holding informational meetings to discuss the upcoming Stormwater Capital Rate vote on April 2. The proposed Stormwater Capital Rate would address flooding and erosion problems that are currently unfunded. MSD has identified approximately 500 flooding and erosion stormwater issues throughout its service area, at a projected price tag of $562 million. If voter approved, the issues would be addressed through an impervious surface rate paid by each customer based upon the total surface-area of their property that cannot absorb water, such as rooftops, driveways and parking lots.
Throughout March, MSD will host a series of public meetings to educate its customers on stormwater issues in the region and answer questions about the proposed Stormwater Capital Rate. Public meeting dates are as follows*:
- March 6 at The Pavilion at Lemay, 305 Gregg Road, Lemay, MO 63125
- March 13 at Chesterfield City Hall, 690 Chesterfield Parkway West, Chesterfield, MO 63017. (This meeting will also be live-streamed. Check www.stlmsd.com/PropS for more details.)
- March 20 at The Center of Clayton, 50 Gay Avenue, Clayton, MO 63105
- March 21 at The Pointe of Ballwin Common, #1 Ballwin Commons Circle, Ballwin, MO 63021
- March 27 at the Ferguson Community Center-Event Space, 1050 Smith Avenue, Ferguson, MO 63135
*All meetings will be held 6:00-8:00 p.m.
