Apple Valley


Golden State Water is proud to provide quality, reliable water service to the Apple Valley region. We currently serve approximately 2,900 customers in both Apple Valley and Lucerne Valley.

Four water systems provide water to the Apple Valley Customer Service Area. The Desert View, Lucerne, North Apple Valley and South Apple Valley systems deliver water to customers from groundwater pumped from the Mojave River Basin-Alto Sub- Basin, which is the upper portion of the Mojave River.



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.

  • On July 15, 2020, Golden State Water filed a GRC application for the years 2022, 2023 and 2024. Learn more: 2022-24 GRC Fact Sheet
  • Effective Sept. 27, 2019, an average residential customer in the Apple Valley Customer Service Area would see a monthly bill increase of $0.007 per 748 gallons (1 Ccf), or approximately 0.1 percent, during the 12-month amortization period.
  • Effective June 8, 2019, an average residential customer in the Apple Valley Customer Service Area with a 5/8 x 3/4” meter using 10 Ccf per month would see a monthly bill decrease of $0.94 from $52.70 to $51.76 compared to 2018 (excluding any applicable surcharges).
  • On May 30, 2019, Golden State Water’s GRC was approved by the State of California to set water rates for 2019, 2020 and 2021 and authorize infrastructure investments for the local system. New rates were implemented effective June 8, 2019. Learn more here. (EnglishSpanish)
  • On July 1, 2018, local water rates decreased by 3.21% to pass cost savings from the new lower federal corporate income tax requirement through to customers. Click here to learn more.
