ST. CHARLES, Mo. — Flood cleanup has continued in St. Charles for the past three weeks after they received between 9 and 13 inches of rain in six hours on July 26.
The City of St. Charles has provided dumpsters in the Mueller Soccer Park parking lot. The dumpsters are available to residents until August 21st.
The city has also provided roadside pickup of flood debris for the hardest-hit areas. They began collection on August 8th and headed back out on Monday for a final run-through. Cory Rackley, the chief of sewer maintenance for the City of St. Charles, said they made it about halfway to their curbside locations Monday. He said they would continue curbside service until they ran each location.
“The curbside pickup, we towed two and a half truckloads off the residents’ property. Each truck holds 85 cubic meters,” Rackley said. “So we are approaching 500 cubic meters of flood damage that we are helping local residents clean up. Its a lot to do. Up to town we’re still cleaning up the creek and storm debris at our passageways. We have a lot of infrastructure damage so we are working on it as soon as possible to get everyone back to some normality. There is a long road ahead of us.”
St. Charles residents can put everything in the dumpsters for the next week, except electronics and appliances. The city encouraged residents to contact FEMA at 800-621-FEMA (3362) or visit the website DisasterAssistance.gov to help.
