MSD started a sanitary sewer cleaning program a few years ago. By proactively cleaning our sewers, instead of waiting for problems to develop, we help reduce problems like water backups and sewage overflows.
On average, our crews clean about 15,000-20,000 linear feet of sanitary sewers per day. The type of debris removed during sanitary sewer cleaning includes tree roots, grease, broken pipes, bricks, mud jack, and plumber’s cable.
We will be performing cleaning work in the following areas during the month of April:
- Breckenridge Hills
- University City
- Vinita Park
- Sycamore Hills
- Richmond Heights
- Des Peres
- Unincorporated St. Louis County
