Can You Volunteer to Help Pick Up Flood Debris at 370 Lakeside Park?
The City of St. Peters is organizing a special flood debris pickup at 370 Lakeside Park on Saturday, July 27, 2019. We are seeking volunteers to help in this community effort. Cleanup will take place along the 500-year Lakeside 370 Levee from 8-11 a.m. Trash bags and gloves will be provided.
Volunteers will collect litter that was deposited during this year’s flood along a 3-mile stretch of the levee slope. The litter must be removed from driftwood and other natural woody debris before the remaining park and levee cleaning can be completed.
“This is like our Clean Streams effort each year, but we’re focused on the flood debris that collected along the levee in 370 Lakeside Park,” said Mayor Len Pagano. “We get such a great turnout for our Clean Streams events, and we hope for the same type of community support to help clean 370 Lakeside Park. Every volunteer makes a big difference!”
Pre-registration is required to be part of this volunteer event. If you would like to help, CLICK HERE to fill out the Flood Debris Pickup registration form.
PLEASE NOTE: St. Charles County Department of Public Health reminds volunteers working in or near floodwaters to make certain their tetanus vaccinations are up-to-date.

Truman Blvd. (in St. Charles) Reopens
Truman Boulevard in St. Charles, south of Premier Parkway, reopened this morning, Monday, July 1. This road had been closed from Premier to Sanford Cross due to flooding.
Premier Parkway, the Premier/Truman intersection and the Highway 370 interchange at Truman/Lakeside Drive are in levee-protected areas and have been unaffected by flooding.
370 Lakeside Park remains closed due to floodwaters overtopping the agricultural levee.
