General Information

We are dedicated to preserving the Loxahatchee River and its natural habitats, by implementing innovative wastewater solutions, furthering river research efforts and fostering environmental stewardship.

Wastewater Facility Description

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, 430 low pressure pumping units, 195 pumping stations and 584,400 feet of major force mains. This network carries wastewater from homes and businesses to the regional treatment plant.

Sewer System

One of the most important tasks of the District over the past 37 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.

Reuse

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.

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.
