Stormwater Trash

Litter from streets and neighborhoods is washed into nearby streams and rivers by stormwater. Visible litter and sediment are only part of the stormwater pollution problem. Contaminants from streets, yards and industry can join sewage overflow during rain events.

Since 2011, Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District has been involved in a estimated 27 year, nearly $5 billion project to overhaul the aging stormwater and wastewater sewer systems of the city and county. Like many older cities and towns across the country, St. Louis is facing the the double strain of new development and redevelopment on an aging infrastructure that can no longer support the clean water goals we share.

In December of last year, a new general permit was approved as the next stage of the Phase II Stormwater Plan process. Handling growing amounts of stormwater is a major piece of the planning puzzle. Stormwater carries many non-point source pollutants, from the litter and sediment you can see – to the contaminants from yards, streets and industry you can’t see.

Roland Biehl, Environmental Specialist at the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) Division of Environmental Compliance, will share challenges and accomplishments under the St. Louis County Stormwater Management plan. He will also update us on the new Phase II general permit issued December 14, 2016, how failing individual sewage systems are addressed, and resources on how you can participate in stormwater management

Roland coordinates the St. Louis County Stormwater Phase II Permit activities and works closely with the St. Louis County municipalities on water quality education and regulatory requirements assistance. Roland received his BS in Civil Engineering from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and he has 22 years of regulatory affairs and permit writing experience while at MSD.
