City officials in East Cape Girardeau are urging residents to conserve water and their use of the sewage system. One cit crew started making holes in the sand to start the flow of water flowing through the city system. City Officials say, with more people moving back to town as the water recedes, he said the issue keeps getting worse. Officials want people to cut back on water and sewer usage to help give the system some relief. Officials say, water is still covering some manholes in the area, so they’re starting with the ones crews can access.
