Pumping may need to end at some La Crosse homes



Some homeowners in north La Crosse need to keep pumping water out of their basements, as they’ve been doing for the better part of a year. 

A couple of pumping requests were approved by the city board of public works Monday, including a 30-day extension of the pumping permit at one house on Liberty Street.
