R1097 R E S O L U T I O N NO. 1097 WHEREAS, lot owners in an area tributary to River des Peres have requested the construction of a public sanitary sewer, identified as Subdistrict No. 331 (Greendale Sanitary Interceptor), to be laid across St. Charles Rock Road between Atwater and Colfax Avenues and then southwest through Valhalla Cemetery to the point of connection to the Wheaton Bel-Nor Trunk Sewer, and WHEREAS, the requested sewer will provide a sewer outlet for a substantial area presently served by a community septic tank, and will relieve a recognized unhealthful situation, and WHEREAS, the construction of this interceptor sewer will enable the District to abandon this community treatment plant which is inadequate and is creating a health hazard, and WHEREAS, The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District is applying for a State of Missouri and a Federal Grant to abate this pollution caused by this inadequate treatment facility, NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE METROPOLITAN ST.
