  • IQ Water not affected by drought conditions » Loxahatchee River District
    the value of freshwater and the importance of conservation More than two decades ago the Loxahatchee River District weighed the potential growth of its service area in northern Palm Beach County and southern Martin County with its mission to protect the Loxahatchee River Guided by its Governing Board a staff of engineers biologists and planners created a progressive system to treat and reuse wastewater termed IQ water which has gone on to be nationally recognized for its excellence and safety During current water restrictions some residents might be puzzled to see parks and golf courses still being irrigated Golf courses that irrigate with IQ water are not constrained by water restrictions because the water they use for irrigation is derived from treated wastewater not groundwater Over the last three months the Loxahatchee River District has on average recycled more than 95 percent of the wastewater it receives from the community on a daily basis And this IQ water is not affected by the ongoing drought conditions The Loxahatchee River District supplies IQ water through an extensive network of pumps and pipes throughout the Jupiter and Tequesta communities with more than 30 miles of 4 in to 24 in force mains This distribution system is separate from drinking water lines and monitored 24 hours a day Fore more information about IQ Water and the Loxahatchee River District visit www loxahatcheeriver org By Richard C Dent The golf courses using IQ water include Jupiter Hills Riverbend Tequesta Country Club Turtle Creek Loxahatchee Club Jonathan s Landing Admiral s Cove Bear s Club Abacoa The Golf Club of Jupiter Jupiter Country Club In addition Roger Dean Stadium the F A U Campus and all residential commercial and common area properties within the Abacoa Community are customers of the District s water reclamation program
