SJW employees updating water pipe

System Improvements

San Jose Water is committed to providing safe, high-quality, reliable water. To ensure this is possible, we continually invest in our system and upgrade older infrastructure.

Pipes have a useful life of 100 years or less, so we have made a commitment to replace 1% of our system or 24 miles of pipes annually to meet that 100 year turnover. Over the past decade, we have invested more than $1 billion in capital infrastructure on behalf of the communities we serve.

Below is a summary of SJW’s infrastructure investment by community served for the period of 2013 through 2017, and separately for the General Rates Case (GRC) of 2018 through 2020.
