    ORA Position

    ORA has performed an initial review of San Gabriel Water's Application. ORA finds that San Gabriel's requests require more in-depth analysis to ensure that they are justified and reasonable, particularly in the areas proposed of:  

    • Revenue rate increases, including sales, revenue, consumption, and number of customers. 
    • Operation & Maintenance and Administrative & General expenses, including payroll and conservation. 
    • Additions to its capital investments, including office remodeling, unauthorized plant expenditures, purchase of water rights, construction work in progress, and water quality projects.
