ST. LOUIS — The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District will be weighing its options about how to address chronic flooding issues in an area of south St. Louis.
Spokesman Lance LeComb said four to six homes have a chronic problem with flooding in the area near Grand and Bates. LeComb declined to speculate about the possibility of buyouts or who would fund them.
A big downpour in June left several feet of sewer water in the basements of those homes. MSD said there was no power failure affecting pumps in the neighborhood.
Meanwhile, restoration work goes on for about 80 homes damaged by flooding in north St. Louis. MSD has taken responsibilitye for that flooding.
