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 June 8, 2019, an average residential customer in the Calipatria Customer Service Area with a 5/8 x 3/4” meter using 12 Ccf per month would see a monthly bill decrease of $1.16 from $60.23 to $59.07 compared to 2018 (excluding any applicable surcharges).
