ALERT- MSD Going Ahead With Plan to Pump East-End Sewage to Southwest Louisville

First Time Here? Go To The MAIN PAGE

I know a lot of residents out here feel as though they are being "shit on" by Metro Government, but this is ridiculous. Ed Springston over at Louisville News and Politics has commented on this subject before, and he brought up the possibility of MSD pumping raw sewage from Jeffersontown and other East End neighborhoods to the facility in Southwestern Jefferson County. It seems as though his concerns have been validated by THIS Courier-Journal article.

Although it would be cheaper to build a facility around the area that needs it instead of setting up a 40 mile-long pipeline, MSD doesn't want to upset the East Enders by expanding the existing wastewater treatment plant in J-Town, so the Metropolitan Sewer District has opened a comment period on its $843 million construction plan that includes piping J-Town crap to Valley Station, and you are invited to "air" your concerns and/or opposition to the plan.

Written comments must be received by 5 p.m. Dec. 5 and should be mailed to: MSD Executive Director Bud Schardein at the utility’s headquarters at 700 W. Liberty St., Louisville, KY 40203. People also can express their displeasure at a hearing at 6 p.m. Dec. 2 at MSD headquarters. Here's a MAP.

Agency staff will informally discuss and answer questions about the plan at three other meetings: Nov. 10, Southwest Government Center, 7219 Dixie Highway; Nov. 12, Jeffersontown Fire Department, 10540 Watterson Trail; and Nov. 20, East Government Center, 200 Juneau Road. All are at 6 p.m.

  1. Thanks Brian for helping bring this to light. MSD yet again is basically run by Abramson, regardless of what they say, and they continually prove it in their actions. MSD will end up bankrupting all of us if they continue down the path they are going.

    Thanks for helping bring issues to light.

    Congrats on the new blog good to see someone else get involved.
