Is this a grounding rod? And How can I move it?

I am building a block wall across the path of this line of conduit. Is this a grounding rod? If not, what do you think it is?

I'm happy to provide more information - what do you need to know from me?

No it looks like an active 240V circuit (no neutral, two hots, equipment ground). Given that it exits from a disconnect box and is contained in liquidtight flexible conduit (I don't know how to tell metallic from non-metallic) I bet it runs an air conditioner or heat pump. Is that an A/C pad right next to it?

It is the branch circuit feeding the pool pump. 240V 25A. Coming from the ground. The panel is right behind the wall. I wonder why the went subterranean? I was expecting rebar or something solid core if it was a grounding rod but the fact that they ran underground when the panel is right on the other side of the wall threw me.
