Sustainability

Protecting the world's most precious resource is what we do every day. Part of that commitment is to proactively look for ways to keep it – and the earth from which it flows – safe and clean. Contrary to popular belief, water is a finite resource. In order to help ensure an adequate supply of water for future generations, we must focus on sustainability and innovation today.

In the U.S. alone, there is concern over the sustainability of the nation's water supply as a result of drought, threatened supply and continued population growth. Water scarcity, which we are already experiencing in some regions of the country, and increasing water demand are challenges facing our entire nation.

American Water professionals are working hard to find solutions to these issues. Technologies such as desalination, water recycling and reuse, and innovative feats of engineering such as the new 31-mile water pipeline project completed in November, 2010, in Kentucky are examples of how we are actively working to meet our customers' needs today while preserving and protecting the water supply for future generations.
