San Gabriel

San Gabriel

Overview

Golden State Water is proud to be San Gabriel Valley’s water provider since 1929, serving high-quality, reliable water to approximately 12,300 customers in portions of Arcadia, El Monte, Irwindale, Monrovia, Monterey Park, Rosemead, San Gabriel and Temple City.

Two water systems serve the area. Water delivered to customers in the South Arcadia System is groundwater pumped from the Main San Gabriel Basin. The basin underlies the San Gabriel Valley from Alhambra to San Dimas. Water delivered to customers in the South San Gabriel System is also pumped from the Main San Gabriel Basin and the water system has the ability to supplement supplies with imported water from the Colorado River Aqueduct and the State Water Project (imported and distributed by the 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 San Gabriel Customer Service Area would see a monthly bill increase of $0.007 per 748 gallons (1 Ccf), or approximately 0.1 percent, during the 12-month amortization period.
  • Effective June 8, 2019, an average residential customer in the San Gabriel Customer Service Area with a 5/8 x 3/4” meter using 10 Ccf per month would see a monthly bill decrease of $0.94 from $52.70 to $51.76 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 3.21% to pass cost savings from the new lower federal corporate income tax requirement through to customers. Click here to learn more.
