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.

California American Water is committed to delivering high quality water to all of our customers. In California, we conduct about 47,000 tests per year for about 100 potential contaminants, checking drinking water quality at every stage of the water treatment and delivery process.
