Public meetings on sewage flood that occurred Aug 28

The Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) will host two community meetings next week in neighborhoods heavily affected by the storm of Aug. 28 in order to provide cleanup updates and to inform residents and business owners about the MSD claims process.

The 100-year storm that hit Greater Cincinnati last month has resulted in MSD logging more than 2,242 sewer customer backup (SBU) reports. Completed investigations and new reports continue to be received on a daily basis.

The damage experienced in neighborhoods across the region has created a stressful and uncertain situation for affected home and businessowners. In recognition of this, MSD is enhancing the claims management process by utilizing third party adjusters in order to expedite the influx of claims requests associated with the storm.

To further articulate this message, MSD staff will hold community meetings in the neighborhoods of Bond Hill-Roselawn and Avondale, areas that were among the hardest hit by the storm. Staff will provide updates on clean-up efforts and inform residents and answer questions the claims/claims reimbursement process.

Meeting details are listed below.

-Monday, Sept. 26, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Urban League of Greater Cincinnati, 3458 Reading Rd.

-Tuesday, Sept. 27 from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Community Action Agency, 1740 Langdon Farm Rd.

Residents seeking SBU assistance should call 352-4900 or visit the MSD’s SBU website: http://sbu.msdgc.org/sbu/
