The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will hold two public forums for customers of Liberty Utilities’ Park Water Corp. in Bellflower to give their perspective and input to the CPUC regarding the requests by the water company to increase rates, as follows:
The CPUC welcomes attendance to these public forums (called Public Participation Hearings), as public comments help the CPUC reach an informed decision.
Park Water is requesting CPUC approval (A.18-01-003) to increase revenues by $1.1 million (3.21 percent) in 2019 over current revenues; by $1.77 million (4.98 percent) in 2020; and by $1.94 million (5.24 percent) in 2021. In total, the increases would amount to $4.83 million over three years, resulting in a $20.70 bi-monthly increase to the average customer bill by the year 2021.
While a quorum of Commissioners and/or their staff may attend, no official action will be taken on these applications at the public forums.
For those unable to attend in person, written comments may be submitted to: CPUC Public Advisor, 505 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco, CA 94102, or via email to [email protected] Please refer to proceeding number A.18-01-002 for Apple Valley Ranchos Water and A.18-01-003 for Park Water on any written or email correspondence regarding these proceedings. All public comments received are provided to the CPUC’s Commissioners and the Administrative Law Judge assigned to the cases.
If specialized accommodations are needed to attend, such as non-English language interpreters, please contact the CPUC’s Public Advisor’s Office at [email protected] or toll free at 866-849-8390 at least five business days in advance of the hearing.
