Golden State Water has proudly served Simi Valley since 1965, providing quality, reliable water to approximately 13,300 local customers.
Water delivered to customers in the Simi Valley System is treated surface water purchased from the Calleguas Municipal Water District, which obtains its supply from Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. The primary water supply is also supplemented with groundwater from the Simi Valley Groundwater Basin.

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 Simi Valley Customer Service Area with a 5/8 x 3/4” meter using 11 Ccf per month, would see a monthly bill increase of $3.72 from $59.48 to $63.20 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 1.5% to pass cost savings from the new lower federal corporate income tax requirement through to customers. Click here to learn more.
More than $850,000 in infrastructure improvements are planned for 2019 in the Simi Valley service area.

On April 7, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order lifting the drought emergency for most of the state, while asking Californians to continue using water responsibly and make conservation a way of life.
Local water-use and outdoor irrigation restrictions implemented during the drought emergency have been lifted.
