CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - Southeast Missouri State University will reopen its campuses and classes will be back in session on Thursday, October 6.

According to the university website, students who went home may return to campus at any time on Wednesday.

The university closed its main campus, River Campus, regional campuses and all other University-affiliated facilities on Monday and Tuesday due to a water emergency in Cape Girardeau.

Events scheduled on campus are also canceled.

While the water main break was fixed on Tuesday afternoon, all Cape Girardeau water customers remain under a boil water advisory for the rest of the week.

Southeast is providing bottled water in the residence halls.

According to the university, water will be available beginning Thursday, Oct. 6, for the remainder of the campus community at the Show Me Center between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. and between noon and 1 p.m.

They say you should use Rec Center Drive between the Student Recreation Center and the parking garage for drive-thru distribution on the north side of the Show Me Center near the loading dock.

Limit two bottles per person while supplies last.

They say it is normal for sinks and plumbing to sputter due to air in the lines and should not be cause for concern.

According to the university, dining services will return to normal operating hours on Thursday, Oct. 6; however, Starbucks will remain closed.
