Are Claremont’s water rates really unreasonably high?


From 2008 to 2013 Claremont water rates, based on cost per unit (CCF), more than doubled, and they were already much higher than in neighboring cities.  Although the City and residents have continually protested increases, GSW has been awarded large increases every three years and there is no indication that this will stop.  In spite of having fewer wells, the average monthly bill in La Verne is about $50 less than in Claremont for the same amount of water.
