October 2017                   Anticipated draft rate case decision from CPUC

Recently, Cal Am customers received a letter notifying them of an upcoming CPUC Public Hearing taking place on October 30. The City would like to clarify that this hearing is concerning a different rate case than the one that is noted on this web page and that the City of Thousand Oaks has been fighting. This case is about the profit margin Cal Am (and all other large private water companies in California) are able to include in rates.  Their proposal under this “Cost of Capital” rate case would result in an increase of 1.33% for the average residential water customer (using 18 hcf/month).  This type of rate case happens every 4 to 5 years.  The public hearing was set by the CPUC in Los Angeles since it is a state-wide case. If you have questions or concerns regarding the details of the case noted in the letter, please contact Jay Spurgin, Public Works Director
