New, bigger pump installed in East Cape Girardeau

EAST CAPE GIRARDEAU, Ill. (KFVS) - Crews installed new, bigger pumps near Route 146 on Tuesday, July 16.

It helped relieve the pressure on the sewer system that can’t keep up with the excess water.

The Alexander County EMA director said the pumps they’re using are wearing out because they’re not designed to operate for as long as they have been.
