3 pumping stations are pumping a mixture of storm and sanitary wastewater into Ohio River

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - MSD is reporting that three of its stations are pumping a mix of storm and sanitary wastewater, due to Ohio River levels.

Those stations are the 34th Street location, the Starkey station, and Fourth Street station. The total amount discharged is unknown but, MSD says it will be significant....in the millions of gallons per day.

Contact with river water is discouraged because of this, and also because of unsafe currents and debris.
