SJW 150th Anniversary Mural

Celebrating 150 Years of Service

On November 21, 2016, San Jose Water celebrated its 150th year of serving the community with safe, high quality, and reliable water service. What started with two tanks and 400 connections has grown into a highly efficient, reliable, and sustainable water system serving more than one million people in the greater San Jose metropolitan area.

While many things have changed over the last 150 years, the company’s commitment to delivering exceptional water service to the community remains steadfast. Reflecting on our history, we are proud of not only what we achieved but also how we achieved it. Our heritage, our pragmatic approach, and our commitment to high ethical standards and to the communities we serve are all reflected in our employees, past and present, who continue to be the reason for the company’s success. 

SJW is deeply grateful to be your water service provider and looks forward to serving the community with high quality, safe, and reliable water service for the next 150 years.
