David Mayer – Part of Group Complaints on Yaeger Road and Hollow Oak Ct . Mr. Mayer addressed the severe water conditions at his home. Water is channeled off the streets and redirected into his backyard. (A video was passed around showing the water flow through Mr. Mayer’s backyard). Mr. Mayer stated the water flows like a river into his yard and has washed away dirt exposing electrical wires preventing his children from access to their backyard. He stated that the water has knocked down and rotted his fence and water is now starting to enter the main level of his home. Mr. Mayers states he has cracks in his homes foundation and mold tests performed show his home cannot consistent water damage and he and his wife are now searching for an alternative place to live. The water is coming from Hollow Oak Subdivision. The two storm inlets on the East and West side of the street captures the water and runs under the street and dumps into a backyard located at 5408 Hollow Oak Ct. and this water then runs through his yard. A map provided by MSD shows that a line is supposed to be in place to run the water from these inlets to the retention pond, but upon inspection, both MSD and the County disc overed the line does not exist. Mr. Mayer states this is creating an unsafe environment for his family. 2. Gerry Grosse – Part of a Group Complaint at 5408 Hollow Oak Ct. Mr. Grosse’s wife owns the home at Hollow Oak. Mr. Grosse has received letters from MSD since 2003 indicating MSD does not have the money to correct this problem. Mr. Grosse states he has had MSD out to their property repeatedly . The line runs through his backyard. The water comes from Hollow oak and runs off from that property and Yaeger road. Rev/Edited 1/6/20 Pg. 5 The water meets in the roads and forms a lake in his back yard due to his neighbor’s construction of a retainer wall at his property. Each time it rains , heavy , there is a lake that forms. (Pictures were passed around). Trustee Mandel asked if the problem has occurred since 2003. Mr. Grosse stated that this started later after the wall was built, but he’s had MSD out at the property to check the line that should exist to channel the water down the road. 3. Robert Von Seggern – Rental Home at 211 Renaldo. Mr. Von Seggern states that since 2003, he c ontinues to have sewer backups causing mold to grow in the home. Mr. Von Seggern states that each time he has backups, MSD has taken care of the insurance problems, but the backups continue to affect his finished basement. Mr. Von Seggern says the sewage has gotten so bad it runs out the door when it’s opened. He stated inspectors told him that he no longer has the option of having sewage backups, due to the continued mold buildup, which has caused health issues. He has spoken with engineers and Mr. Von Seggern stated they told him the problem was preventable with a device. Mr. Von Seggern says he spoke with the City of Chesterfield, and they came and dug up the front yard to check lateral, which they informed him, appeared to be fine. Mr. Von Seggern stated the main line backs up every couple years and he would like a device to prevent this in the future by having the main line correct ed. Mr. Seggern states that he sees a potential lawsuit if this is not corrected. The Executive Director indicated that this is an unusual wastewater issue and asked the Director of Operations , Bret Berthold, to speak with the owner. The Director of Operations and Mr. McGownd spoke with Mr. Von Seggern and will address the problems immediately since it is such an unique situation and it’s time to do something. 4. Brian Quinn – 13315 Spindle Lane. Billing Issues. Mr. Quinn lives down the street from the MSD plant in Valley Park. Mr. Quinn stated he has a well on his property and feels that he is being billed incorrectly due to the occupants and the house size. Mr. Quinn states his bill is $77.21 and he would like to be reassessed. He states he may use 100gl of water a day, but he is not allowed to have a meter installed to provide MSD with readings. He would like someone to come to his home if necessary to check on the usage and to show that he is billed incorrectly. The Director of Finance, Marion Gee, stated he would get Mr. Quinn’s information and contact him. The Executive Director stated that all the issues brought forward to the Board would be followed up and reported back to the Board by staff. 5. Kevin Murphy – Part of Group Complaint. 2751 Yaeger Road. Mr. Murphy states that he has a water basin located at the Northwest corner of his property. He also lives next door to Wilson Estates. The water from Wilson Estates yards flows to the middle of the street on Yaeger collecting at the water basin at the corner of his property and the basins cannot handle it. Wilson Estates has built a 4” curb and water jumps the basins and hits 4” curb and floods his yard. Mr. Murphy states that Wilson Estates also installed other structures to hold back the water, but they are not working well. Mr. Murphy says that Wilson Estates increased their subdivision height by 28ft, which placed his property in a hole. Mr. Murphy says t he water invades his property, causing foundation problems on his west corner and Mr. Murphy stated he is now having health issues due to the mold in his home. Mr. Murphy asks for assistance to correcting this issue. Trustee Yates reiterated that all issues will be reviewed. 6. Elaine Laura – Billing Issues at 4436 Enright Ave. Ms. Laura referred to the Financial Report of MSD, on page 6 “what we do”. Ms. Laura indicated the comparison chart of the wastewater user charge between St Louis and Detroit, Boston New Orleans, Louisville, Nashville and Springfield Mo. performed by the Memphis, Light, Gas and Water company . Ms. Laura stated that all of Boston water and sewer is metered where St Louis City is not. Ms. Laura says she spoke about this frequently and says the metered and unmetered are looked at differently and she would like this process changed due to the inequality of the system.
