Cane River pumping station operating at only one-third capacity


Since mid-June 2018, testing has continued on the Cane River Waterway Commission’s “Cane River Lake Pumping Station.”  The system was last tested July 2.

Although the system has proved operable during short tests, it has operated below specifications, delivering about one-third the water flow rate required by the specifications.

On July 6, the Commission’s project engineer formally requested that the contractor provide a proposal to bring the project into compliance with the specifications.  This proposal should be delivered to the project engineer prior to July 20.

The Commission shall continue to provide more information on the project as that becomes available.
