In an effort to separate fact from fiction, Councilmen Rick Blackwell (D-12) and Bob Henderson (D-14) are offering residents of their districts a chance to tour MSD’s Guthrie Water Quality Treatment Center to learn more about future sewage treatment plans for Southwest Louisville.
“The best way to find out about MSD’s plan is to actually see what is being talked about,” says Blackwell. “This tour is a chance to separate reality from rumor.”
The tour will get underway at the Treatment Center begin at 10:00am on Saturday, February 28th. The facility is located at 11621 Lower River Road.
“If anyone wants to know how a facility like this operates and what all is involved in how MSD handles sewage treatment, then I encourage them to take this tour,” says Henderson.
MSD has conducted a series of public hearings to discuss the future of drainage in Jefferson County.
“I want to invite anyone who is really interested in this project to come out, take the tour, ask questions and then decide what you think,” says Blackwell.
Anyone who is interested in taking the tour, please contact Councilman Blackwell’s office and Councilman Henderson’ s to RSVP so we can accommodate the size of the group. For District 12 residents, call 574-1112. District 14 residents should call 574-1114
