Publicly Traded Water Utilities

U.S. Exchanges

List of Publicly Traded Water Utilities Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges

Water utilities provide the drinking water for their communities which are often geographically located in proximity to one another. They also often provide the wastewater and other water-related services to these same service areas. It should be noted that there are public companies that only focus on drinking water and do not provide the wastewater services.

Unlike some of the other public utilities, there are more cases of the parent company owning water utilities in multiple non-adjacent states. For example, California Water Service Group (CWT) owns public water utilities that provide services in California, Hawaii, New Mexico and Washington. Aqua America (WTR) and American Water Works (AWK) are even more geographically diverse.
