About Us

In a world where everything we touch frequently changes, water is our constant.

We’ve never stopped needing it to drink, to cook, to clean, to live. We’ll always need it for sanitation, for fire protection, for watering our lawns and washing our cars.

It’s easy to take water for granted. And because so many do, we don't.

We are experts at delivering high-quality water and wastewater service to our customers. And we are more. We are scientists, environmentalists, innovators, and protectors.

In Florida, we oversaw a three-year project to correct design deficiencies in the largest desalination plant in North America – the Tampa Bay Seawater Desalination Plant. We now operate the 25-million-gallon-per-day facility, which removes the salt from seawater by reverse osmosis to create drinking water. Serving more than 2.5 million people, the plant has eased the Tampa Bay region’s reliance on groundwater.

In the communities we serve, we are residents and employees. We understand how important, how precious, and how critical water is to daily life. It's not always apparent just how far into our daily lives water reaches. We just know that when we need it, we expect it to be there. How it gets there, and more importantly, ensuring that it does get there and that it is of high quality, is what our skilled team cares about most.

We invite you into our site to explore and learn about water, all that we do for our customers and the communities we serve.

We are American Water.
