You are invited to attend a Water Quality Forum hosted by the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati - MSD on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 from 5-7pm. You can read the invitation here.
As you may know, MSD is in the midst of a multi-billion dollar and multi-year Consent Decree to reduce and/or eliminate sewer overflows. Part of this work includes assessing and tracking water quality in our streams and rivers.
The forum on December 12 will provide an update on how MSD is proceeding on this front, including how data collection and modeling is being used to better assess wet weather issues and how sustained dry weather water quality conditions in our streams (physical, chemical and biological) are being measured and tracked in relation to sewer overflows and other sources of stress.
MSD is inviting individuals, advocacy and interest groups, and local, state and federal governments and agencies that have both a stake and a role in achieving and sustaining water quality improvements for our region, including the MSD service area, to attend this event.
Learning about MSD's efforts to improve water quality, and providing your ideas, input and guidance during the forum, will help MSD make the best use of public ratepayer dollars to improve conditions in our local surface waters.
