Current Rates

East Pasadena Water Company's rates are set by the California Public Utilities Commission. A 1.9% CPI increase was approved and put into rates effective March 1, 2020.

Each customer's bill reflects a service charge based on the size of the meter. Please see the chart below for our service charge costs.

Current Commodity Rate East Pasadena Water Company incurs costs to pump water out of the aquifer. The California Public Utilities Commission authorized our current rate at $3.024 per unit of water. A unit of water is defined as 100 cubic feet (CCF). This rate is charged to all customers regardless of the amount of water used, and regardless if you are a residential or commercial customer.

California Public Utilities Commission Fee The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) regulates East Pasadena Water Company's rates. This government agency collects 1.23% of a combination of the water and service charge as their fee. This money is sent to the CPUC quarterly.

CLRMA 17/18: The CLRMA is a temporary surcharge approved by the CPUC to recover lost operating revenue during the enforced conservation. Rather than raise customer rates, this surcharge will be in place for a period of one year ending in May 2020.

Water Production Surcharge: The Water Production Surcharge is a temporary surcharge approved by the CPUC. This surcharge will be in place for a period of one yar beginning April 1, 2020.
