California Public Utilities Commission: Ensure affordable water for California Water Company's Antelope Valley customers

California Water Service Company's Antelope Valley customers pay an average of $140 per month for locally sourced well water. Neighbors literally across the street pay only a third of that for water and sewer through other water providers.

Now California Water Company wants to hike rates 59% in 2014 alone. Working families, retired people and small business owners can no longer pay these outrageous rates, especially in such a tight economy.

We feel confident the CPUC will come to a decision that is in line with Assembly Bill 685, which states that "every human being has the right to safe, clean, affordable, and accessible water."
