There have been several reports of people pretending to be San Jose Water employees calling customers and asking them to pay their water bill immediately (to the scammers). They claim that if you do not pay, your water will be shut off. This is a SCAM. SJW is not shutting off any water service for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meter Reading Resumes
Effective June 1, 2020, SJW resumed meter reading with enhanced safety precautions. Please maintain six feet of distance from our meter readers when you see them out in the field. In light of COVID-19, since March 17, 2020, SJW had suspended meter reading and established estimating billing for the safety of our employees and customers. For more information about this change, read our Frequently Asked Questions.
Protecting Our Employees
While most of our employees are now telecommuting, our front-line employees remain hard at work in the field.
Please practice social distancing guidelines (6 feet away) when you see SJW employees in the field.
After several weeks or more of non-use, stagnant water in building plumbing can cause conditions that increase the risk for growth and spread of Legionella and other biofilm-associated bacteria. Take these preventative measures to protect employees' health when it's safe to open back up.
