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 Massachusetts, we helped the town of Foxborough ease the strain on its water supply and wastewater disposal capacity during football games at Gillette Stadium, home of the NFL’s New England Patriots. To produce high-quality reuse water for toilet flushing, facilities cooling and other purposes, we created an environmentally friendly wastewater treatment system for the stadium. The system serves nearly 69,000 fans during peak halftime flush periods without creating additional demands on the community’s existing systems.

In the communities we serve, we are also 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.
