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 seriously on our end. We do this through aggressive leak detection programs which help us to minimize water lost to leaks in our water mains as it travels between our tanks, wells, reservoirs and customers' homes. 

These Simple Steps Can Make A Huge Difference!
