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).

 

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 Culver City Customer Service Area with a 5/8 x 3/4” meter, using 7,480 gallons (1,000 cubic feet or 10 Ccf) of water per month, would see a monthly bill decrease of $1.68 from $56.33 to $54.65 compared to 2016 (excluding any applicable surcharges).
  • Effective July 1, 2018, local water rates will decrease by 3.94% 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).
