Proposed Adjustment to Stormwater Fee

On Tuesday, August 17, 2021, the Jupiter Town Council will consider a resolution during its regular meeting to adjust the monthly fees charged for stormwater services. The proposed 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 stormwater fee is proposed to increase by 1.1%. To see the current and proposed fee compared to other regional utilities please email Customer Service at winfo@jupiter.fl.us. The resolution containing the proposed fee adjustment will be available a week prior to the August 17 meeting here. Hard copies will also be available in the Town Hall lobby. 

Fertilizer Ban Ordinance:
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.

Notice:
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. Each year the annual Water Quality Report is published, and can be found on our website. This report is updated each May, and customers receive a copy in their utility bills or can view the report online.
