Our Commitment

San Jose Water has maintained a long tradition of promoting conservation. To help educate our customers about water conservation we offer complimentary water check-ups, educational materials, and free low-flow devices.

We also take the responsibility to conserve on our end seriously through aggressive leak detection programs that help us minimize water lost to leaks in our water mains as it travels between our tanks, wells, reservoirs and our customer's homes and businesses.
