MSD station

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Metropolitan Sewer District is turning on its flood pumping stations to keep the Ohio River out of the city.

MSD has 16 flood pumping stations, and plans to have six of them running by the end of the day on Monday.

Officials are also inspecting flood gates and putting some in action, even though the water isn't out of the banks yet.
