General Neighborhood Construction Information

Connection to the sanitary sewer system typically consists of 4 costs:

1. Connection (Capacity) Charge - this charge pays for the cost of the portion of the treatment facility and major transmission lines that will be used by your home. This is a one time charge that is based upon the number of toilets in your home and the year that your home was built:

Connection (Capacity) Charge
Toilets in Your Home One-time Charge
1 Toilet $2,660.20*
2 Toilets $3,325.25*
3 Toilets $3,990.30*
4 (or more) Toilets $4,655.35*
*Homes built before 1981 cost $500.00 less.
Connection charge can be pre-paid at any time to avoid future rate increases.

2. On-site Connection Cost - the homeowner is responsible for the cost of connecting the property to the service line that will be installed at the edge of the right-of-way. The property owner will contract with a plumber or may install the service line himself to abandon the septic tank. Proper permits must be obtained from the municipality or county.

3. Assessment - Upon completion of construction the total costs of construction are compiled and equally divided among all the properties served by this project. The Loxahatchee River District will pay 10% of the cost. The assessment will be determined after construction is completed and property owner will be notified of the amount and payment procedures. The non ad-valorem assessment will be placed upon the property tax bill and paid over 20 years.

4. Quarterly Service Charge - Once your home is connected to the regional wastewater system or after the one-year connection period, you will receive a sewer bill every three months. This quarterly bill will be $52.22 for a one-toilet home, $65.28 for a two-toilet home, $78.33 for a three-toilet home and a four toilet home will pay $91.38. Please go under 'Residental' for additional costs.

2015 Night on the Loxahatchee: River Rhapsody
In the waning light of day on July 10, 1860, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse flashed its guiding beacon out across the seas for the first time. The completion of the lighthouse not only signaled a new era of safe navigation, but also served as a central point for a wide variety of communication technologies that helped turn the region from a sparsely populated “end of the line” settlement into a vibrant community living off the bounty of resources along the Loxahatchee River and Atlantic coast. It is only fitting then that this period of growth during the late 19th Century will be showcased at this year’s highly anticipated Night on the Loxahatchee fundraiser to benefit the River Center.
