The Board of Directors of the Fenton Fire Protection District have placed Proposition F on the ballot for the November 6th election. The Fenton Fire District’s current infrastructure is aging and needs to be modernized through rebuilding or redesign. Modern fire stations are considered Critical Infrastructure for their communities and should be able to withstand natural disasters and be outfitted with the current space and technologies required for disaster and emergency response in the modern age. The District’s current facilities do not meet these requirements. More information is available at www.votefentonfire.com.
Meramec Flood Planning
Flooding is a common occurrence in certain areas of the Fenton Fire Protection District. Because of this constant threat, the district has developed maps to display the potential effects on flooding at different river levels. The maps are an estimate based on ground elevation and river levels measured at the Meramec River at Valley Park Gage.
The following maps are sized to be printed on 11x17 paper, are available as PDF files, and estimate the flooding of the Meramec River at:
- 27 Feet (141 at I-44 floods)
- 33 Feet (Old 141 Closes at Gravois)
- 38 Feet (2008 Flood Crest, Highway 30 Closes)
- 44 Feet (2015 Flood Crest)
Adobe Reader may be required to view the maps.
