MSD May Buy Out Flood Prone Homes in South St. Louis

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) –The Metropolitan Sewer District says it may have to eventually buy out some low-lying properties in south St. Louis that flooded during the big June downpour.  Some 40 homes near Grand and Bates had several feet of sewer water in the basement, when 4-to-6 inches of rain fell June 26th.  

MSD spokesman Lance LeComb says the Grand and Bates area is flood prone and may have to be bought out. 

MSD says there was no power failure that affected the pumps in the Grand and Bates neighborhood. 

Meanwhile, restoration work continues on some 80 homes swamped by flooding MSD has taken the blame for in north St. Louis.
