Improving Our Community Waterways Together

I64/Grinstead Basin Project

I64 Grinstead Drive Storage BasinI64 Grinstead Drive Storage Basin

Basins are a key part of achieving safe, clean waterways

Rainwater can enter the sewer system during rain events and cause a mixture of sewage and rainwater to flow untreated into our waterways. Proposed and existing storage basins—throughout our city—are designed to retain the mixture of rainwater and sewage until the rain subsides, and then gradually release it back into the sewer system for treatment.

Interstate 64/Grinstead Drive Storage Basin

Located behind the former site of Jim Porter’s Good Time Emporium, the Interstate 64/Grinstead Drive Storage Basin will be underground and covered. A small building above it will include pumps and equipment for operation. Input from the neighbors—at public meetings and online—will determine the specific details of the earthen covering. This basin will offer Beargrass Creek protection from combined sewer overflows.

MSD held an Advanced Design Meeting concerning the I64 & Grinstead CSO (Combined Sewer Overflow) Basin—a covered-underground basin.

This meeting provided information about the advanced design phase of the basin, and offered an opportunity for input and comments.

This basin project will greatly lessen the occurrence of combined sewer overflows—untreated sewage—entering Beargrass Creek during rain events.
