Water Conservation
Description of Action: 
Through the use of innovative technologies, New Jersey American Water is able to detect and fix leaks before they become large breaks, saving water and money, as well as reducing disruption of service to customers. We have a 17 percent lost water average, compared to state averages of 25-30 percent.
Water Other
Description of Action: 
Water weighs about eight pounds per gallon so pumping water from source to treatment facilities and through the distribution system to people’s homes requires significant amounts of energy. By replacing inefficient pumps in the system, New Jersey American Water gains efficiency and further reduces our carbon footprint.
