Culver City

Overview

Golden State Water has proudly served the community of Culver City for more than 80 years. With approximately 9,500 customers, Culver City is one of Golden State Water’s largest Service Areas. Located in western Los Angeles County, the city is known as the “Heart of Screenland” because of the historical role it has played in television and movie making.

The Culver City System serves imported water from the Colorado River Aqueduct and the State Water Project (imported and distributed by Metropolitan Water District of Southern California).

Rates

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 Sept. 27, 2019, an average residential customer in the Culver City Customer Service Area would see a monthly bill increase of $0.171 per 748 gallons (1 Ccf), or approximately 2.8 percent, during the 12-month amortization period.
  • Effective June 8, 2019, an average residential customer in the Culver City Customer Service Area with a 5/8 x 3/4” meter using 9 Ccf per month would see a monthly bill increase of $3.29 from $51.17 to $54.46 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 3.94% to pass cost savings from the new lower federal corporate income tax requirement through to customers. Click here to learn more.
