MSD at Work
- Minimize overflows
- Minimize basement backups
- Maintain and rehab infrastructure
- Maintain and rehab storm sewers
MSD does NOT build stormwater or wastewater sewers for new development. That infrastructure and its initial cost is the responsibility of developers. Once they are finished building that infrastructure, it is deeded over to MSD and we assume responsibility for its maintenance and operation. When existing sewers need to be replaced, we then do construction and rehabilitation.
