City of Cape authorizes new pump station generator | News
CAPE GIRARDEAU (KFVS) - The City of Cape Girardeau recently authorized a new generator for backup power at the Merriweather Pump Station.
Several pumping stations along Main Street at Mill and Merriweather streets take in storm water from the city and pump it into the river. Without these pumping stations, certain eastern parts of the city would flood.
Workers will be pouring concrete for the project soon and work is expected to be completed by the spring rain season.
