Valley Park Officials Still Not Commenting on Claims Levee Too High

VALLEY PARK, MO (KMOX) – KMOX continues to try and get information on the Valley Park Levee….You might remember when we told you, the levee was built five feet over what the Corps of Engineers recommended.

Washington University Professor Bob Criss says Valley Park stayed dry, but surrounding communities such as; Eureka, Fenton, Kirkwood and Sunset Hills were inundated with flooding in December.

Valley Park Mayor Mike Pennise still refuses to comment on the claim. Tuesday, KMOX spoke with the City Clerk Marguerite Wilburn, who referred us to the City Attorney Tim Engelmeyer. So, far our calls to Engelmeyer have not been returned.

    It might be true that surrounding communities were inundated with flooding. But the inference in this non-story (and in prior stories) is that a higher levee at Valley Park caused greater flooding in those other communities. It is not hydraulically possible for Valley Park to have influenced higher flood levels in those communities.
