Golden State Water has proudly served Los Alamitos and surrounding communities since 1929. We currently serve approximately 27,200 customers in Cypress, Los Alamitos, Stanton and portions of Buena Park, Garden Grove, La Palma, Rossmoor and Seal Beach.

Water delivered to customers in the West Orange County System is a blend of groundwater pumped from the Orange County Groundwater Basin and imported water from the Colorado River Aqueduct and 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 June 8, 2019, an average residential customer in the Los Alamitos Customer Service Area with a 5/8 x 3/4” meter using 11 Ccf per month would see a monthly bill decrease of $1.04 from $56.46 to $55.42 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. Click here to learn more.
  • 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.
Golden State Water plans to invest approximately $115 million companywide for infrastructure projects in 2019, because proactive system maintenance is critical to protecting water service now and for future generations.

More than $5.8 million in infrastructure improvements are planned for 2019 in the Los Alamitos service area.

The 2019 investments include water supply enhancements, distribution and ongoing improvements designed to replace old meters, mains and safety equipment. Click here to learn more and access a list of projects planned for 2019.
