Free Chlorine Maintenance to Begin in September

To maintain the water quality in our distribution system, Jupiter Utilities will temporarily modify the disinfection used by our water treatment facility. Typically, chlorine in combination with ammonia (chloramination) is used by Jupiter Utilities for water system disinfection. For approximately one month, beginning September 21 ending October 19, Jupiter will be using chlorine without ammonia, which may cause a chlorine taste or odor in the tap water. Customers can safely drink the water during the free chlorine maintenance as it continues to protect and promote distribution system water quality. This temporary change in our treatment process is a standard industry practice performed in accordance with State and Federal drinking water regulations.
Additionally, we will conduct flushing from fire hydrants and blow-offs at the end of our pipes to further improve water quality. During this period, we will sample and test our water to monitor the effectiveness of the temporary modification.

Kidney dialysis users should consult their physician about taking precautions related to the change in disinfection. Owners of tropical fish aquariums and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised that both types of disinfectants are toxic to aquatic animals and should seek professional advice during this change.

Additional Information

North Jupiter Distribution System Improvements

The Utility is preparing to start construction of new watermains and drainage improvements in the North Jupiter area. Localized fire protection and aging infrastructure issues will be addressed when back yard water mains, old valves, and hydrants are replaced east and west of Seabrook Road. Valves and hydrants on existing watermains in road right of ways will be replaced and additional valves will be installed for better isolation of the distribution system. The contractor will be performing some preliminary work in the next few weeks and construction will be starting in early June.

This will affect customers predominantly on Norfolk Rd, Windsor Rd, Beverly Rd, Norwood Rd, Donald Rd, Lance Rd, Kingsley Rd, Van Rd, East Riverside Dr, and Pennisular Rd.
