Testing Continues Following Water Main Break; Schedule Adjustments Announced


CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Aug. 28, 2014 – City crews have completed repairs on a city water main break that occurred early Wednesday on the Southeast Missouri State University campus. However, the line cannot be activated until city officials complete testing and obtain approval from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, which is not expected until late Friday or early Saturday.

Water flow and pressure will remain at their current levels until the City of Cape Girardeau receives approval from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to reopen the repaired water main. The water remains safe to drink on campus as it has been since the break was discovered.
