ST. LOUIS — The Mississippi River is receding quickly in St. Louis, allowing the President Casino to open again.
The St. Louis region's only casino that actually sits on the Mississippi River reopened Wednesday, 10 days after rising water forced it to close.
KTVI-TV reports that city street crews were out early Wednesday washing mud off the street in front of the casino.
It was the second time this year the casino has had to close due to flooding.
Pinnacle Entertainment is giving up its license for the casino, which will close for good in about a month.
Pinnacle operates two other St. Louis-area casinos, including Lumiere Place, which stands just a few hundred feet from the President.
