New Jersey American Water's Response to EWG 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. We have treatment processes in place to ensure our systems meet or surpass all current EPA and NJ DEP standards for safe drinking water, and we continually sample our water to ensure compliance.

The recent EWG report issued on January 22, does not mention any New Jersey American Water service areas, but we understand the concern our customers have regarding PFAS. To learn more about PFAS, please read our one-pager on the compounds here.  

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 our website.

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 EPA and New Jersey drinking water standards.

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