Two new pumps are being installed to bring down the level at Lake Sumter.
The installation is taking place with heavy equipment in the parking lot of the Waterfront Inn, near the dock area that accommodates Dragon Boaters.
The Project Wide Advisory Committee is spending $120,000 on the custom-made pumps. The submersible pumps will have the ability to pump out 5,000 gallons of water per minute.
It still could take quite a while for the lake level to come down, District officials have said.
The water will be pumped into retention basins in Community Development District 5.
