Drought concerns in Loxahatchee Groves causing issues with canal levels, dust
Drought concerns in Loxahatchee Groves causing issues with canal levels, dust.
That’s not snow covering her trees.
“That’s the dust on the road.
Gisela, who owns an art studio in Loxahatchee, says the drought and increased dust is creating a tough situation for her clients.
“We’ve considered giving them $6 so they can go to a car wash every time they come out, but they don’t want to do that either,” she says.
It’s not just the dust causing concern.
Marge Herzog has lived here since the towns incorporation, and is also president of the town’s landowner’s association.
It’s a concern – especially in a town where so many people use well water.
“When the water table goes down, some of the wells could go dry if they aren’t deep enough,” she says.
Herzog says a possible solution would be to pump more water from the C-51 canal – but it’s a slow moving process between the state’s water management district and the town’s water management district.
