It is, therefore, the agency’s intent to work closely with new development to assure that the utility services can be provided in a manner which is both timely and consistent with the standards and specifications of the District.

One of the most important tasks of the District over the past 30 years has been the elimination of septic tanks in our region, which pose a persistent threat to the environment. To date, over 85% of the 60,000 homes in our service area are served by the regional sewer system, and we are working to develop sewer installation programs for the remaining neighborhoods located in the urban areas.
Wastewater treatment plants are imperative for public health, as well as the protection of our community’s natural resources. The District’s wastewater system is made up of more than 1,325,000 feet or 250 miles of gravity sewer lines, nearly 1,000 low pressure pumping units, 195 pumping stations and 584,400 feet of major force mains.

Currently, more than 50% of our state’s precious drinking water is being used for irrigation, which is both detrimental to the environment and expensive for residents. As populations rise, water conservation is of increasing importance, especially in growing communities like Jupiter. Reuse programs allow us to limit our impact and reserve our precious fresh water supplies for drinking water.
