New water tank incorporates modern seismic standards to ensure system reliability.

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 26, 2024 – San Jose Water (“SJW” or “the Company”), a wholly owned subsidiary of SJW Group (NYSE: SJW), recently completed its water tank replacement project at Montego Station. 

The original Montego Station tank was installed in 1970. The tank’s nearly 50-year-old design and installation predated modern earthquake-resistant structural integrity requirements, critical to today’s infrastructure. 

The project includes a new 377,600-gallon welded steel water storage tank that meets modern seismic standards to minimize failure risk during earthquakes, a chloramination system to enhance water quality, and other site improvements. This $4 million project will serve future generations with safe and reliable water service.

Since 2005, San Jose Water has invested more than $1.6 billion to upgrade water infrastructure. SJW manages approximately 140-square miles in its service area, with 2,400 miles of water mains, 106 tanks and reservoirs, 20,143 hydrants and 35,143 valves. SJW’s approach to infrastructure management is to maximize the useful life of assets — ensuring the delivery of reliable, high-quality water and exceptional service to its customers.
