Conversations with Metropolitan Sewer District experts. The League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area invites you to join us for a night of group discussions with experts, and learn about our sewage system. After a general introduction by Economic Environmental Solutions International Consultant Karen Luken, participants will choose 1 or 2 topics for small group conversations with experts. Groups will discuss:
  • Sewage back-ups, flooding, reimbursement for home damage
  • MSD rate structure and affordability
  • Infrastructure Construction + Project Groundwater, EPA consent decree, future plans
  • Governance of MSD, public oversight and the contract between the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.

Invited experts include Metropolitan Sewer District's former Director Gérald Checco, Wastewater Division Director Mike Pittenger, Sierra Club's Marilyn Wall and Tom Moeller, Communities United for Action (CUFA) members, and County Commissioner Todd Portune. There will be plenty of time to ask questions; together, we are educating and looking for solutions.
