EWRI May Speaker Series Topic: “St. Louis MSD CSO Volume Reduction Green Infrastructure Program ”

The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) is a regional Sewer District that provides wastewater and stormwater services to the City of St. Louis and most of St. Louis County, Missouri. The service area includes a combined sewer system (CSS) in the City and the older portions of the County. In 2011, MSD completed a Combined Sewer Overflow Long-Term Control Plan (LTCP), which was formalized in a Consent Decree (CD) with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in April 2012. MSD’s Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) control plan includes a $100 million CSO Volume Reduction Green Infrastructure Program in the areas of the City of St. Louis that flow toward the Mississippi River CSOs. MSD spent five years conducting a $3 million CSO Volume Reduction Green Infrastructure Pilot Program, culminating in a CD required final report completed in December 2015. Having received approval from the EPA in May 2016, the report explains what work was completed in the pilot and the results, and outlines MSD’s plan for full implementation of the CSO Volume Reduction Green Infrastructure Program control measure. This presentation will review the Pilot Program and present the plan for full-implementation of the $100 million CSO Volume Reduction Green Infrastructure Program. Included will be lessons learned from the Pilot Program, discussion of the Early Action Projects completed and outlining of the major components of the program moving forward. Also discussed will be how MSD intends to use the adaptive management approach to implement the CSO Volume Reduction Green Infrastructure Program through 2034.
