MSD sends diver down manhole to block off storm water

Posted: Updated:

The Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) said it is keeping a close watch on trouble areas prone to flooding amid expected downpours.

On Thursday, MSD officials sent a diver down a manhole to seal off any overflow that could spill onto the roadway near Riverview and Chain of Rocks Road.

Within five minutes the diver was able to seal off the storm water line, using a large balloon-like device.

Officials said crews had to act quickly, especially since waters around the area have been an issue in the past.

If flooding still occurs after this procedure, MSD said the city would be responsible for clearing roadways.
