Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
Why doesn't LADPW offer reduced rates to low-income customers?



ANSWER:
The Waterworks Districts operations are entirely funded by the water rates. They do not receive funding from the County General fund. Consequently, any type of rate reduction to certain customers would require a rate increase on the other customers to subsidize the reduced rates. The Waterworks District rates in the Antelope Valley are very comparable to other water companies in the area and are much less than water rates paid by customers in the Los Angeles basin areas.
