I drive my kids to/from school at Meramec Heights every day, and there is clearly an open sewage problem at the intersection of Old Highway 21 & the Outer Road.

It's been stinking for months. I know other parents have noticed it and commented on it. Surely bus drivers smell it also, as well as employees of the school.

It is not coming from Walter Knoll, or the school. It seems to be coming from a small group of duplexes that sit right at the corner of the intersection. I don't know how the residents can stand it.

Is it dangerous to breathe in 24/7? I don't know.

Clearly someone's septic system or plumbing is broke down.

What county department is responsible for overseeing open sewage, that this could be reported to? Or can I confirm it has already been reported? Surely the school officials have already reported, or the other residents of the area.

It's very noticeable.

I think Renee Reuter is the county council representative for that area. Her contact information is available on line. If I put it on here, it will most likely be deleted. She is easy to talk to. I just cannot picture the area you are speaking of, but will look the next time I go by.

Well thanks Doris, that's a start.

It's the outer road & Old 21, a little group of duplexes that face out onto 21 with a short dead end road.
Coming from Highway 141, onto Old 21:

You'd make a right on the outer road from 21, then make an immediate left. If you get to the dumpster for the apartment complex, you're too far.

I'll try Renee. It's very obviously open sewage, you just can't mistake that kind of thing.
