The Metropolitan Sewer District will hold a public meeting tomorrow afternoon to answer questions about the projects the district is taking to reduce sewer overflow.
MSD spokesman Brian Bingham says there are a number of projects the agency is undertaking as part of a consent decree with the federal Environmental Protection Agency.
“The large expansion out at the Derek R. Guthrie wastewater treatment plant in southwest Jefferson County is one big one,” Bingham said. “The projects out in Floyds Fork that are related to the elimination of the Jeffersontown wastewater treatment plant. We have a number of smaller green infrastructure projects scattered throughout the community.”
So rather than have multiple individual meetings, MSD will hold an open house to discuss all of the projects. MSD staff members will be available between 3 and 7 p.m. to answer questions and take written testimony from the public about the projects. There is a formal presentation scheduled at 4 and 6pm.
