On Friday, May 3, 2019, American Water responded via email to a question posed by one of its institutional shareholders during a telephonic engagement call regarding Proposals 4 and 5 included in the 2019 Proxy Statement. On the call, the shareholder asked how much California-American Water Company ("Cal Am") spent in 2018 in connection with the Monterey, California condemnation action known as "Measure J." American Water provided via email an estimate of the amount spent by Cal Am in defending itself in this matter, which amount was approximately $2.7 million. For more information on this condemnation matter, please see American Water's Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, as filed with the SEC on May 1, 2019.
