MSD is managed by a charter which puts forth the initiative of MSD on a year-by-year basis and guides the various departments. MSD leadership consists of a Board of Trustees, management team and a Rate Commission. For more information on the organization, follow the links below:
Board of Trustees
MSD is governed by a six member Board of Trustees. Three members are appointed by the St. Louis City Mayor and three members are appointed by the St. Louis County Executive. MSD's Board members are trustees of public property and public funds and are responsible to the customers they serve.
The Board of Trustees hires MSD's chief executive officer, who is responsible for all MSD operations. He and his 900 employees address the day-to-day needs of all MSD customers.
The mission of the Rate Commission is to review and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees regarding all proposed changes in wastewater rates, stormwater rates and tax rates or the change in the structure of any of the foregoing ("rate").
