Golden State Water proudly serves 4,900 customers in Bay Point. We’ve been providing the local community high quality, reliable water for more than 45 years.

Water delivered to customers in the Bay Point System is a blend of groundwater pumped from wells and surface water treated at the Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant.

 

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 Bay Point Customer Service Area with a 5/8 x 3/4” meter, using 5,236 gallons (700 cubic feet or 7 Ccf) of water per month, would see a monthly bill increase of $3.03 from $53.38 to $56.41 compared to 2016 (excluding any applicable surcharges).
  • Effective July 1, 2018, local water rates will decrease by 3.09% to pass cost savings from the new lower federal corporate income tax requirement through to customers. Click here to learn more.
  • 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.
