Associate Professor of Biology at Saint Louis University, Jason Knouft, talks with Don Corrigan about possible issues from raw sewage being pumped into the Meramec River because of the damaged Fenton Sewage Treatment Plant.
The Fenton Sewage Plant is estimated to be non-operational until April. Raw sewage is being pumped into the Meramec River until the plant is repaired from damages sustained in the historic December flooding.
Knouft lends scientific understanding of what the raw sewage could do to plant and wildlife habitat, and also what humans should be aware of before entering the river.
