Paddy's Run Flood Pump Station Capacity Upgrade Project


MSD maintains Louisville Metro’s Ohio River Flood Protection System—keeping the river at bay and out of the city.

The Paddy’s Run Flood Pump Station, which has served the community since 1953, is an integral part of the flood protection system. This station protects 214,500 people, 70,000 homes, 60 businesses and 40 neighborhoods.

The Project seeks to replace the pump station to meet a projected 10-year, 24-hour storm event by doubling its capacity to 1.9 billion gallons per day.
