Drinking water continues to meet state and federal health standards.

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 23 – San Jose Water (“SJW” or “the Company”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of SJW Group (NYSE: SJW), announced today that it has filed its 2023 Consumer Confidence Report (also known as a Water Quality Report). The Water Quality Report provides a snapshot of last year’s cumulative local water quality data, including where the company’s water comes from and how its quality compares to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California state standards. It also summarizes the results of more than 18,000 water quality tests conducted throughout the year.

“San Jose Water’s top priority is to provide clean and reliable water to our local customers and communities,” said Tanya Moniz-Witten, President of San Jose Water. “We are committed to conducting thorough testing to ensure we meet or exceed all drinking water regulations. We also maintain a consistent track record of responsible infrastructure investment to manage and enhance water delivery and treatment processes.

The Water Quality Report details SJW’s response to the EPA’s first-ever nationwide, legally enforceable drinking water standards for PFAS, which were announced on April 10, 2024. PFAS, which has been detected nationwide, is released into the environment from the manufacture and consumption of many household and commercial products. SJW has been proactively monitoring for the presence of PFAS compounds in all of its wells since 2019, participates in the EPA’s UCMR5 testing program, and is actively designing its first ion exchange facility to treat PFAS. 

“This report aims to serve as a valuable resource for our customers regarding their water quality and assure them that we are focused on getting it right,” said Suzanne DeLorenzo PhD, San Jose Water Director of Water Quality. “Our proactive measures to test and mitigate contaminants, including our aggressive water quality assurance practices, underscore our dedication to public health and natural resource stewardship.” 

As an award-winning member of the Partnership for Safe Water, San Jose Water remains focused on water quality and environmental stewardship to ensure the continued delivery of high-quality water.

The report is available at www.sjwater.com/CCR. Earlier this month, SJW held a webinar with DeLorenzo explaining the results of the report and answering customer questions about their water quality. A recording of that webinar and the presentation deck can be found at www.sjwater.com/webinars.
