CITY NEWS AND UPDATES
Posted: 9/5/2018 at 12:34 p.m.
Tony Wagner, Director of Public works, shares an important update, below, about a Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) Project - called - Project Clear.
Please note that Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), will be in our community beginning this week, inspecting private drains at properties located in our city. Please do not be alarmed! We were notified of this "fieldwork" which is part of Project Clear, a Sewer Improvement Program.
The representatives are working on behalf of the company called ABNA Engineering, Inc.
This firm was hired by Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD). They will be wearing badges, ID cards and florescent vests. You may see them walking in yards, around homes, and checking downspouts, manholes, drains, and other connections to sewer systems.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact any member of the evaluation team you see in your neighborhood (or) you may contact their supervisor, Deborah Dilworth, by calling: 314-454-0222 x1146 or sending her an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, please also feel free to contact the City of Shrewsbury, City Hall, at 314-647-5795, if you wish to do so.
Thank you for helping our City of Shrewsbury be a successful participant in the MSD Project Clear program.
