Proposed Adjustment to Stormwater Fee
On Tuesday, August 17, 2021, the Jupiter Town Council approved a resolution during its regular meeting to adjust the monthly fees charged for stormwater services. On October 1, 2021 residents will see a 1.1% increase in their stormwater utility fee included on their monthly utility bill. The adjustment is intended to do the following: Enhance stormwater runoff quality to the Loxahatchee River to effectively mitigate existing water quality impairments, minimize the risk of flooding, maintain rates for service consistent with the cost of service, and support the sustainability of the utility’s financial plan including funding for renewal and replacement of aging assets.
The typical residential customer's monthly stormwater utility fee will increase from $6.10 to $6.17, an increase of $0.07. Jupiter's rate remains 18.4% below the average rate charged by other local utilities.
Beginning January 1, 2019, the use of fertilizers during Jupiter’s rainy season, which runs from June 1 through September 30, is prohibited in the Town of Jupiter. Landscape and lawn care businesses that operate in Jupiter should take note of the ban, as well as residents who maintain their own lawns.
Some Town of Jupiter Utilities customers may be receiving calls from a company offering to test their water and suggesting that they purchase expensive water filtration systems to address water quality issues. These companies are not associated with the Town of Jupiter Utilities, and may be operating under the name of Environmental Quality Assurance. In some cases, they may provide inaccurate information to customers on the quality of their water, so the Town of Jupiter Utilities would like to caution customers on these claims.
Town of Jupiter Utilities customers are provided with water that meets or exceeds all federal and state requirements. Water quality is regularly monitored for contaminants according to Federal and State laws, rules and regulations. The utility has no violations, and over the years has won many awards.
