Water Rate Adjustments Under Consideration
As part of an ongoing commitment to responsible planning, the District recently completed a study of its rates and fees to ensure they are adequate to support the cost of providing service. This independent cost-of-service study determined that rate adjustments are necessary to generate additional revenue needed to offset increases in the cost of producing groundwater and the costs for operations, maintenance and improvements to the District’s water system. As a result, the District’s Board of Directors is considering a plan to adjust water rates over a five-year period. Before any water rate adjustments are approved, the District will mail a notice to all of its customers with specific details on the proposed rate adjustments.
Industry Public Utilities Water System (IPU)
The Industry Public Utilities Water System is owned by the City of Industry and is managed and operated by the La Puente Valley County Water District under an Operation and Management Agreement. Due to the close proximity of IPU’s water system to the District, District staff can provide these services efficiently and at the same high level of service as provided to the District’s own customers. If you would like more information on how the system is managed and operated please feel free to contact the District office.

Learn How Saving Water Is Part Of The California Lifestyle!
The Governor recently signed in to law two bills that overhaul the State’s approach to water-use efficiency and carry out his order to make conservation a way of life in California. The new laws require water providers to develop new water use objectives and other policies to meet efficient water use targets. In the meantime, we must continue to use water as efficiently as possible because our region is still in the midst of drought conditions.
