Taking advantage of the Securities and Exchange Commission's innovative Notice and Access rules, American Water has posted its proxy materials and annual report on Form 10-K on the company's website instead of mailing paper copies to every stockholder. The company is using electronic distribution of its proxy materials to stockholders in an effort to reduce printing and mailing costs, as well as reduce the consumption of paper and other resources. Making use of this technology is part of American Water's drive for fuller transparency, greater engagement with its stockholders, and the company's commitment to sustainability.
Interested parties may listen to a live, audio webcast of the annual meeting over the Internet by logging on to the Investor Relations page of the company's website at www.amwater.com.The webcast will be archived for 30 days following the annual meeting.
