I would like to introduce our Director of Operations, Bret Berthold, to present his Semi Annual Regulatory Compliance Operations Report. Edited 11/5/19 Pg. 5 Bret addressed the Board and thanked the Executive Director. Bret reviewed the Semi Annual Regulatory Report with the Board and provide an update on river levels. • Bret informed board that this report covers January to June 2019 and began with discussion regarding the treatment plants. • Bret explained the violations that were found at a few treatment plants during the 6-month period and the number of compliance points that must be adhered to. He then explained that the Operation department works hand and hand with the laboratory to accurately report measurements. • Coldwater had two violations that came from illegal dumping, an investigation was performed and found the offending business. MSD was able to address the issue and sent a notice of violation. The Lemay Treatment Plant violation was related to river flooding and the high flow rates on the River Des Peres. Three of the other Treatment plants have had perfect compliance for five(5) or more years. • Slide 4. Bret explained that MSD has a goal of responding to customer calls within four(4) hours 90% of the time and within the first half of 2019, MSD did not meet that goal, but that has been tied directly to the intense storms and heavy rains. We received hundreds of calls during the heavy rain period and it is very hard to meet the four(4) hour goal time period, but on a dry day, we would respond to all of our calls above 90%. • Slide 5. Bret then addressed the tracking of maintenance related backups and overcharged conditions. Bret explained that these backups were mostly maintenance related and the 6-month goal is to have less than 210 backups; Bret shared that things are going fine, and MSD is well within the target. • Slide 6. Maintenance overflow goals are less than 80 on a semiannual basis. Bret explained that MSD was a little higher, but well within the overall goal. He then explained that this is a watch item for staff. • Slide 7. Bret explained the slide further. He stated that when our sewers receive too much storm water, it can cause “overcharges”. He explains that in the first portion of 2019, we had 606 total overcharges, well above what had been reported in the past. This is due to a record year of rainfall. • Slide 8. Bret then provided a status update regarding the removal of our Sanitary Sewer Overflow points. At the end of June 2019, MSD was down to ninety(90). In the 1980’s or 90’s we had over 600 overflows. We keep working these numbers down and hopefully we will be down to thirty-five (35) by the end of 2023, with the rest of the overflows eliminated by the end of 2033; Meeting all the goals with the EPA. • Slide 9. Even though we have ninety(90) overflow points, not all of them activate. Out of the ninety(90) only forty-six(46) have actually activated; even with all of the bad storms, so that’s a good thing. Edited 11/5/19 Pg. 6 • Slide 10. Bret then explained the Score Card. MSD has a treatment plant compliance goal of 100% and MSD is almost there with one small infraction, but a 99.9% score card is very good. Bret then explained that the Customer response is not where we want it, but weather has been a dictator. • Bret explained that MSD tries to have Maintenance related backups we try to have less than 1 per 1000 homes and we’re at .8 and the maintenance related backups we’re below our goal, but we’re concerned with this and we’re currently watching this. • If you g o to your last slide, a hydrograph tracks the river level and shows the river level at the arch is going to peak at 32.6 and we’re back on flood duty. I have staff working 24/7, manning the big pump stations on the Mississippi River to make sure they’re operating properly. This is not as bad as the past flooding when the river level reached 45 feet. This is being driven by the rains up the Illinois, Mississippi and Missouri river in Iowa, Nebraska Northern Mo, Northern Illinois. We went on flood duty on October 2nd. We should come off by October 21st. This is not the norm for this time of year and we should have a river stage of 15ft or so, but where we want to get to is 0. The impact is that we will not be able to perform some of the preventive maintenance work and we will not have access to the sewers due to the river being engulfed. Thank you, Mr. Chair. That concludes my Executive Director report.
