Water Treatment & Distribution

Alliance Water Resources has operated and maintained the water system for the City of Cape Girardeau since June 3, 1992, when the water system was purchased by the City from Union Electric.

The Cape Rock Water Treatment Plant is operated and maintained 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays. The system has a 10.3 million gallon per day production capacity and an average daily production of 5.4 million gallons.

Over 300 miles of water mains are maintained and repaired, including service connections up to property lines.  Every month, water crews read over 17,000 meters and respond to over 1,000 customer service calls.  Alliance also provides locate services for water, sewer, storm, fiber, and city electric lines to contractors and homeowners. 

In addition to the services Alliance Water Resources provides, the City has a four-man water distribution crew. This crew is mainly responsible for replacing the two-inch diameter mains with larger size mains to improve flow, reliability and reduce water loss. The crew is responsible for operation and maintenance of the City's directional drilling machine and assists other Public Works Divisions and Alliance Water Resources with underground utility work.
