  1. Gumbo Limbo Pump Station Project

New Seawater Pump Station for Gumbo Limbo Nature Center

Construction of new intake lines for seawater for the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center will begin on Monday, May 23, 2022. An ocean barge will be stationed offshore of Red Reef Park to begin installing pipes needed for the project. Beaches at Red Reef Park will remain open.

Work will also occur at South Inlet Park. This location will be the assembly area for pipes needed for the intake line installation, beginning on May 27, 2022. Please note, the impacted area will remain open through the holiday weekend. The area below will close intermittently throughout the project. Beachgoers should follow the signs in-place. 

The barge will remain offshore for 6-8 weeks. Work on the project will take place Monday – Saturday, from approximately 7am -5pm.

Project Details
 The City, in coordination with the Greater Beach and Parks District, are constructing new seawater intake lines and a pump station construction on the north end of Red Reef Park. The seawater intake lines will pull fresh seawater from the Atlantic Ocean and pump it to the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center via the new pump station.

  • Phase I: Intake line installation: Directional drill will be used to create path for two (2) new seawater intake lines. Piping for the intake lines will be constructed at South Inlet Park and transported to an offshore barge prior to being installed underground. Parking may be reduced at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center.
  • Phase II: Pump station construction: Construction of a pump station building which will include excavation to install new sweater intake pumps. The north circle at Red Reef Park will be closed. Beach will remain open. Parking may be reduced at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. 
  • For any questions, call 561-416-3385.

The current pump station that services Gumbo Limbo was installed 30 years ago and needs replacement. Once installed, the new pump will more efficiently provide clean, clear, natural ocean water for all the marine life at Gumbo Limbo and the adjacent FAU Marine Laboratory.
