For decades, River des Peres has been a joke among locals. It is known for being dirty and disgusting. This joke is not funny - it's depressing. There have been plans to clean the river and separate the sanitary and stormwater systems that would allow the locals to use the river recreationally. This needs to happen - and before it does, the river needs to be cleaned - thoroughly. There is so much trash that the water is barely visible - even when it crests.

Cleaning River des Peres will add so much to the community.
