Many property and business owners in the Tri-State are relieved to finally see water levels going down after recent flooding.

Many businesses such as Ellis Park rely on industrial water pumps to keep their business afloat before and after a flood.

Those pumps come from places like Xylem in Evansville, a business that offers pump rentals and support.

Xylem Branch Manager Tony Blaine said the company is ready weeks in advance.

Xylem said this has been a record year for demand.

Right now, Xylem has over 120 pumps working through the Tri-State and Ohio Valley.
