New Jersey American Water's Response to EWG Drinking Water Report

At New Jersey American Water, we take water quality and safety very seriously. We routinely monitor our source water for emerging contaminants like PFOA and PFOS. As noted in the May 7, 2019 Environmental Working Group article, New Jersey American Water has detected PFOA and PFOS in some of our source water. Our treatment processes remove PFOA and PFOS from the source water to meet or surpass all current EPA and NJDEP guidance for these contaminants. We continually sample your water to ensure compliance.

New Jersey American Water is proud of our water quality record and we work very hard to make sure that our customers have access to their water quality data.  Each year, we produce water quality reports for our customers telling them about the quality of their water and make this information available to them on the Internet. 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets water quality standards intended to protect public health and New Jersey American Water treats and delivers water that meets or surpasses all EPA and New Jersey drinking water standards. 

Further, we participate in community source water protection programs nationwide to help safeguard our water sources. The end result of these efforts is that New Jersey American Water treats and delivers high quality, reliable water.
