Free Chlorine Maintenance:
Beginning August 31, 2020 and ending September 18, 2020, Jupiter Utilities will temporarily modify the disinfection process used within our water system in order to further protect the distribution system water quality. A temporary method of free chlorination will be used which may cause a chlorine taste or odor in the tap water during the change. For more information click here or contact the following lab staff: Gary Schulze, 741-2606; Sara Ouly, 741-2735.
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. For additional information and resources, please see our webpage.
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 Opens a New Window. .
