The town of Jupiter is banning fertilizer use during the rainy season to keep nitrogen and phosphorus out of local bodies of water.
Starting this Saturday, residents and commercial property owners won’t be able to use commonly available fertilizers until October.
The ban passed last November, and is being put into effect for the first time on June 1. It applies to residential properties and some commercial areas. Farms, golf courses and other specialty turf fields, like athletic fields, are exempt.
