Welcome to New Jersey American Water
New Jersey American Water is your local water and wastewater company.
Our lives revolve around water. It’s somehow involved in everything thing we do, everything we use. We are experts in water service and wastewater treatment.
In New Jersey we serve approximately 2.5 million people, in 17 counties, supplying high quality water and wastewater service. We abide by regulations, invest in our vast infrastructure, develop industry innovations, educate our customers on wise water use, and help out where we can in our cities and towns.
In New Jersey, the Board of Public Utilities sets rules and we carefully follow them. Those regulations are what help to ensure everyone is receiving high quality water and wastewater service at a fair price. All increases in service rates are directly related to the cost of providing high quality service and are subjected to a public review process and approval by the Board of Public Utilities.
In addition, New Jersey American Water follows strict regulations created by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) that help to provide high quality drinking water. Because we work in cooperation with the USEPA to help in the development of national drinking water standards, we are often years ahead of the industry in implementing regulations.
New Jersey American Water is committed to delivering high quality water to all of our customers. In New Jersey, we conduct over 130,000 tests per year for about 100 potential contaminants, checking drinking water quality at every stage of the water treatment and delivery process.
