In general the flow of water in Jupiter Farms is from the property into a swale along the street then into collector and then main canals and out to the ocean. As one goes further from the main canals the level of maintenance decreases and thus there are properties in the farms which will flood with a heavy rain but basically this is because a property ‘downstream’ has not maintained the flow path. Technically speaking all of Jupiter Farms is currently an Flood Zone: X500. The X500 area represent areas between the limits of the 100-year and 500-year flood; or certain areas subject to 100-year flood with average depths less than 1 foot or where the contributing drainage area is less than 1 square mile; or areas protected by levees from the 100-year flood. That being said it is proposed to change this to a Flood Zone X which represents areas outside the 500-year flood plain with less than 0.2% annual probability of flooding. Neither one of these requires flood insurance for a conforming loan. Palm Beach Country Estates does have an area prone to flooding.
