Golden State Water has been a proud member of the Wrightwood community since 1976. We currently serve 2,700 local customers with quality, reliable water.

Water delivered to customers in the Wrightwood System is groundwater pumped from several canyon underflows, Swarthout Valley and Sheep Creek in the Wrightwood area adjacent to Highway 2.

As a regulated utility, Golden State Water’s rates are determined by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) through a General Rate Case (GRC) to ensure customers receive a fair rate for reliable, quality water service.

  • Effective April 20, 2017, an average residential customer in the Wrightwood Customer Service Area with a 5/8 x 3/4” meter, using 3,740 gallons (500 cubic feet or 5 Ccf) of water per month, would see a monthly bill increase of $1.41 from $32.22 to $33.63 compared to 2016 (excluding any applicable surcharges).
  • Golden State Water’s rates for 2016, 2017 and 2018 were approved by the CPUC in March 2017. The GRC approval was originally expected prior to Jan. 1, 2016, and the delayed approval prevented Golden State Water from implementing the new rates for 2016 on schedule (2015 rates remained in place during the delay period).

On April 7, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order lifting the drought emergency for most of the state, while asking Californians to continue using water responsibly and make conservation a way of life.

Local water-use and outdoor irrigation restrictions implemented during the drought emergency have been lifted.
