Upcoming Public Participation Hearings and Certain Events


Suburban Water Systems Requests

The CPUC is holding remote participation public forums to hear from you about Suburban Water Systems' rate increase request.

Why is Suburban Water Systems requesting this rate increase? Every three years the large Class A water utilities undergo a “General Rate Case,” or GRC, at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). A GRC allows the CPUC to take a broad, in-depth look at a water company’s revenues and expenses and consider quality of service and other factors to arrive at just and reasonable rates. As part of a GRC proceeding, a water company requests revenue for the next three years based on its forecasted expenses and necessary investments and must justify the proposed rate increase.

Due to the Governor’s directive and the CPUC’s ongoing efforts to protect customers and community members during COVID-19, there will be no in-person physical location for these public forums.

Written public comments may also be provided at any time during the proceeding using the “Add Public Comment” button on the “Public Comment” tab of the Docket Card for A.20-03-001, available at https://apps.cpuc.ca.gov/apex/f?p=401:56:0::NO:RP,57,RIR:P5_PROCEEDING_SELECT:A2003001

We hope you join us remotely to make your voice heard. If you intend to make comment, please call into the meeting.
