Power Failure At Pump Station In Castlewood State Park Causes Wastewater Spill
(January 12, 2015) – A power failure at a Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) pump station located in Castlewood State Park has caused a spill of approximately 50,000 gallons of wastewater. The spill has been contained in the area around the pump station and is believed to have not reached Kiefer Creek or the Meramec River. Officials with the park, located along the north side of Interstate 44 and west of State Highway 141, have been notified. Portions of the park are closed to allow for cleanup activities. The exact location of the pump station is near the middle portion of the eastern edge of the park, between Kiefer Creek to the north and the Meramec River to the south. Operations at the pump station have been fully restored.
