Cleanup continues along Dryden Court in St. Louis two days after sewer backups triggered massive flash flooding. MSD is waiving its usual caps on damage reimbursements because power outages at its pumping stations caused the floods.
The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District has decided to waive its normal $2,400 cap for damage reimbursements and will completely pay for flood damage sustained June 25 by 70 specific homes in north St. Louis.
Why waive the cap? Because the District has determined it is at fault.
