The Charter Plan of the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) is a blueprint for how MSD is operated. The plan was created when MSD was formed in 1954 and was amended and approved by voters in 2000 and further amended in 2012.
In August 2011, the Department of Justice filed a settlement, or consent decree, requiring MSD to spend a minimum $4.7 billion over the next 23 years to address the issue of overflows and other sewer system improvements. The consent decree agreement between MSD, the EPA, and the Missouri Coalition for the Environment has been accepted by the United States District Court.
The Strategic Business and Operating Plan (SBOP) is a business-focused blueprint for serving our customers now and in the future. The plan is based on five goals and six business-focused strategies.
