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."

Ensure affordable water for California Water Company's Antelope Valley customers (A.12-07-007).

Cal Water's Antelope Valley customers pay an average of $140 per month for locally sourced well water. Neighbors literally across the street pay a third as much for water and sewer though other water providers.

Now Cal Water 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."
