In California, the California Public Utilities Commission set rules and we carefully follow them. Those regulations are what help to ensure everyone is receiving high quality water and wastewater service at a fair price. All increases in service rates are directly related to the cost of providing high quality service and are subjected to a public review process and approval by the California Public Utilities Commission.
In addition, California American Water follows strict regulations created by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) that help to provide high quality drinking water. Because we work in cooperation with the USEPA, to help in the development of national drinking water standards, we are often years ahead of the industry in implementing regulations.
