Business Wire

SAN DIMAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

American States Water Company (AWR) today announced that despite California’s statewide drought conditions and Governor Brown’s recent drought declaration, water supplies for each of the 38 water systems at its utility subsidiary Golden State Water Company (“GSWC”) are sufficient to continue providing its customers with reliable and quality water services. At this time, no water rationing is expected for GSWC’s water customers. However, as we have done in the past, GSWC will maintain active communication with its customers in the event it is required to implement water rationing and restrictions. The dry weather and drought conditions are important reminders for us all to use water wisely.

“Whether a wet or dry year, we believe it is always important to use water wisely,” said Robert J. Sprowls, President and CEO. Sprowls continued, “We have invested significant resources to help our customers conserve this precious resource.”

The Company will continue to monitor water supplies in each of the communities it serves and work closely with wholesale providers to ensure an adequate supply. We will continue to keep customers updated as these circumstances could change.
