Where Do We Get Our Drinking Water From ?
The Town of Jupiter gets its water from two sources - the surficial and Floridan aquifers . There are currently 63 wells around Town – 12 pull from the deeper Floridan Aquifer which is 1,500 + feet deep , and 51 pull from the shallower surficial aquifer which is about 150 feet deep .

2022 Water Quality Report

Jupiter ’ s Water is Safe and Secure

The Town of Jupiter is pleased to report that the water delivered to Jupiter Utilities customers meets or exceeds all state and federal requirements . Each year , the Town ’ s Utilities department performs more than 7,000 tests to ensure the water delivered to our customers is safe from harmful contaminants . This report contains the results of our tests and provides our customers with a better understanding about the drinking water delivered by the Town of Jupiter Utilities Department .
If you have any questions about the information in this report or about your water quality , contact Allyson Felsburg at 561-741-2735 or visit www . jupiter . fl . us / Water .
The Town uses both Reverse Osmosis ( RO ) and Nanofiltration ( NF ) Systems to treat its water . The NF processes the water from the surficial aquifer while the RO processes the water from the deeper Floridan aquifer .
Both of these processes use membrane filtration .

Membrane filtration involves passing a pressurized raw water flow through a membrane system that separates it into two individual streams , known as the input ( the pressurized raw water flow ) and the output ( filtered water product ). The membrane that separates them is a physical barrier that only certain selected components in the water can pass through . The pores of the membranes used for nanofiltration and reverse osmosis are so small that they cannot be seen even with a scanning electron microscope .
People with Special Health Concerns
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population . Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy , persons who have undergone organ transplants , people with HIV / AIDS or other immune system disorders , some elderly , and infants can be particularly at risk from infections . These people should seek advice about drinking water from their healthcare providers . EPA / Center for Disease Control ( CDC ) guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline 1-800-426-4791 .
