CRYSTAL CITY, Mo. (KMOV) – The Army Corps of Engineers is closely monitoring a Jefferson County levee that is eroded.

The levee in Crystal City, about 30 miles south of St. Louis, isn't threatening homes, but could damage a local sewer plant.

Before the city can permanently repair the levee, the ground will have to be dry.

Crews have been working on a temporary repair to the levee, however, and have installed a plastic coating around the area held by sandbags.
