The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) works to protect the public health and environment through effective wastewater and stormwater management. As part of MSD Project Clear, a long-term effort to reduce basement backups and sewer overflows, MSD is planning a construction project in your neighborhood: Mulberry Creek Sanitary Relief (Project #12355).
This is a project that while still years away, will direct affect Ward 4 residents in the area around Westhaven Court, Harwich Drive, Rusdon Lane, Glenfield Terrace, Lowill Lane, and Eddie and Park Road.
MSD Project Clear invites you to attend a Zoom virtual public meeting on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. to learn more about the project, meet the Design team, and let us answer any questions you may have.

MSD Project Clear planners and engineers have designed a new project called Mulberry Creek Sanitary Relief (Project #12355). This project will help reduce basement backups and prevent sewer overflows by increasing the size of the sewer.
Additional information on the project can be found by visiting msdprojectclear.org/mulberry. We appreciate your cooperation as we work together to improve water quality and reduce basement backups in your neighborhood.
In 2018, the City completed a redesign of the W. Mulberry Street corridor, which added a center turn lane, protected bike lanes, crossing improvements, and reduced travel lanes to one lane in each direction. Over the course of the following year, the City collected public feedback, traffic data, crash data, and tracked maintenance processes to evaluate the project. This information has and will continue to be used to make refinements to the design of the corridor and will inform project design for future protected bike lanes in Fort Collins. Overall, the W. Mulberry Street redesign achieved the goals of project, which included improving safety, increasing bicycle ridership, and refining best practices for the design and maintenance of protected bike lanes.
In 2018, the City completed a redesign of the West Mulberry Street corridor, which included adding a center turn lane, adding protected bike lanes, and reducing travel lanes from two lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction. The protected bike lanes were completed as part of a pilot project, which includes testing different types of bike lane protection to determine the best approach for future projects. As part of this pilot project, the City conducted evaluation of the project to seek feedback on different aspects of the design. This information will be used to inform future project design and to determine whether additional refinements are needed for the Mulberry corridor. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback!
Building on the recommendations adopted in the 2017 Old Town Neighborhoods Plan and 2014 Bicycle Master Plan, the City will be improving W. Mulberry Street between Jackson Ave. and Overland Trail in 2018. This project will restripe Mulberry to add a center turn lane while also piloting protected bicycle lanes. The lower traffic volumes in this section of Mulberry Street means traffic can continue to flow smoothly with one travel lane in each direction, while the new center lane allows for safer and more convenient left turns to residential driveways and local streets. Space gained from the reduction in lanes will be utilized to enhance bicycle mobility, while also increasing the buffer between the sidewalk and travel lanes. Bicycle and pedestrian crossing improvements are also planned at the following locations along the corridor: Mulberry at Impala / Ponderosa, Mulberry at City Park, and N. Shields at Magnolia.
A three-block protected bike lane project was installed in 2015 on Laurel Street between South Howes Street and Remington Street. The project featured parking protected bike lanes, protected bike lanes, shared lane markings, green paint denoting a merge zone, and a bike box.
Air Products and The AES Corporation plan to invest approximately $4 billion to build, own and operate a green hydrogen production facility in Wilbarger County, Texas. The mega-scale renewable power to hydrogen project includes approximately 1.4 gigawatts (GW) of wind and solar power generation, along with electrolyzer capacity capable of producing over 200 metric tons per day of green hydrogen, making it the largest green hydrogen facility in the United States.
Finally, users can retrieve available metagenomes using getMetaGenomes(). The name argument receives the metagenome project name retrieved with listMetaGenomes(). The path argument specifies the folder path in which corresponding genomes shall be stored.
Internally, getMetaGenomes() creates a folder specified in the path argument. Genomes associated with the metagenomes project specified in the name argument will then be downloaded and stored in this folder. As return value getMetaGenomes() returns the file paths to the genome files which can then be used as input to the read*() functions.
Alternatively or subsequent to the metagenome retrieval, users can retrieve annotation files of genomes belonging to a metagenome project selected with listMetaGenomes() by using the getMetaGenomeAnnotations() function.
A set of genes predicted by RNA sequencing to be related to color development were selected for qPCR assays. First-strand cDNA was synthesized using a FastQuant RT Kit (TIANGEN Biotech, KR106, Beijing, China). Gene-specific primers for qPCR were designed using Primer Premier software (Table S3). The Morus010170 gene was used as an internal control to normalize gene expression. The qPCR assays were performed using SYBR Premix Ex TaqII (Tli RNaseH Plus; Takara Bio, Shiga, Japan) in a LightCycler 480 instrument (Roche). To ensure reproducibility and reliability, three biological replicates were performed for each gene. We performed regression analysis between the qPCR and RNA sequencing data for 20 genes of the two genotypes at the three fruit-ripening stages using R version 3.1.3 ( -project.org/).
The new British Breeds Gift Box Edition 3 is the perfect opportunity to knit 20 glorious colours in the British Breeds yarn range. The gift box contains 21 balls of the British Breeds yarn (1 x 25gm ball of 19 colours and 2 x 25gm balls of one other colour), a book containing the new and exclusive Ottilie Shrug pattern and the accessory patterns from Gift Boxes 1 and 2, and a Marie Wallin calico project bag. All this is presented in a high quality, re-useable large gift box which has a magnetic closure. Included in the price of the gift box is a downloadable PDF version of the new gift box book. With this you will be able to enlarge the charts without having to spoil the printed book. The download link is sent by email once your order has been shipped.
The Ottilie Shrug is a new Fairisle design and is exclusive to this gift box and will not be available anywhere else. The shrug is knitted flat using 20 colours and the additional exclusive accessory designs from Gift Box 1 and 2 are the perfect projects for using up any of your leftover yarns.
Several challenges were addressed for the success of this project. One is the importance of the light path design. Our experimentation has shown that the layout of the light path is critical in obtaining an accurate fluorescent measurement. Also, the reasonable heating and cooling duration was a topic that needed to be investigated. In order to be consistent with the theme of this work, a simple fan-based cooling method is used, rather than adapting more elegant cooling methods, such as a Peltier device. However, the fluorescence-based quantitative reading requires a complete enclosure around the heating element and the sample to reduce background noise in the photodiode reading. To satisfy both conditions, a centrifugal fan design is adapted to redirect the air inlet to the air vent, which inhibits any directional external light exposure to the photodiode through the air inlet and vent. As a part of future work, new heating and cooling mechanisms are being investigated to reduce the total qPCR duration. One important topic that is not addressed in the work is sample preparation. In order for a qPCR diagnostic device to be highly relevant in a resource-limited setting, it is essential to have an easy and low-cost solution for sample preparation, prior to qPCR detection. This is particularly true when using a blood sample that can inhibit PCR. The DNA or RNA needs to be extracted from the raw sample before loading the sample into the qPCR device. We are working toward integrating a simple sample preparations scheme to enhance the usefulness of the presented work.
