Veolia Water Withdraws From Contract with City of St. Louis
Veolia withdrawal is a big surprise at least to me. City will now work with MSD on water dept efficiency.— LydaKrewson (@LydaKrewson) October 29, 2013
What's clear today, ppl don't want Veolia, other bidders, MSD, nor water rate hikes. Only @MayorSlay actually looking for real solutions tho— Patrick R. Brown (@iPRB) October 29, 2013
After the dust from the Veolia controversy settles, the Water Division will still need to rebuild its infrastructure. At today's hearing, it was announced that the Metropolitan Sewer District will partner with the department, and some are already asking whether MSD will then partner with Veolia to accomplish this.
For now, however, this appears to be the end of one long, crooked path for a city contract.
