LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Residents from the Newburg and Buechel are protesting the Metropolitan Sewer District's plan to build a 40-acre sewage basin in their neighborhood.

The site is located around Produce Road and Poplar Level Road.

The protesters said they want a meeting with the mayor and MSD to talk about plans for the basin that will work for their community.
