Lox Pump Project Gets Underway

Loxahatchee Groves Mayor Robert Shorr sits in front of the pump at the D Road canal, which was removed recently for an overhaul. The pump is the town’s sole source of back-pumping water from the C-51 Canal when water gets low in Loxahatchee Groves canals. The work will include installation of a soft-start device that can be activated automatically when electric rates are lowest, eliminating the need for a staff member to come out and start the motor.
