MSD seeks input from customers on overflow projects

Storm water overflows from a manhole cover, flooding a city street.
The Metropolitan Sewer District has scheduled a meeting to provide customers with an update on Louisville Metro’s sewer overflow abatement program.

This program, referred to as a "consent decree", is in response to a 2005 Federal mandate from the Environmental Protection Agency that required MSD to eliminate combined sewer systems. Combined systems handle sewage and runoff from storms. During periods of heavy rain, the combined systems can overflow, causing a discharge of untreated, raw sewage into the Ohio River.

Customers will hear about sewer overflow abatement projects in their neighborhood and tips on how each person can help keep sewer rates lower.

MSD is seeking public input from you so that these specific projects and property decisions can reflect concerns of the people that are directly impacted. MSD encourages your participation so that together we can promote a clean, green, growing community.

WHERE: Moore Traditional High School, 6415 Outer Loop
WHEN: Tuesday, February 5, 2013 6:00 p.m

Although MSD encourages your attendance, questions and comments regarding sewer overflow abatement projects may also be submitted until Tuesday, February 12, 2013, via email at Comments may also be mailed in hard copy addressed to: MSD IOAP Project Comments Attn: Project WIN Program Manager 700 West Liberty St. Louisville, KY 40203 For additional information about this program, refer to the Project WIN website at
