Permanent Pump at Stockton Lake Has Problems


The newly-repaired permanent pump at Stockton Lake isn't working and demand for water continues to rise right along with the temperature. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports.

The newly-repaired permanent pump at Stockton Lake isn't working and demand for water continues to rise right along with the temperature. Ernie De Camp is spokesman for City Utilities of Springfield.

He says the city's water needs are being met with a temporary pump.

De Camp says even with the rainfall this week, C-U is asking customers to conserve water.

Yesterday, C-U customers' demand for water was 38 million gallons.

The peak for this year hit on June 30th when customers used 49 million gallons.
