Cal Water recibió la aprobación de la Comisión de Servicios Públicos de California (California Public Utilities Commission, CPUC) para adquirir los recursos del sistema de agua de King's Mountain Park Mutual Water Company (King's Mountain).
The King's Mountain system, which is adjacent to Cal Water's Bear Gulch District, currently serves 23 residential connections near Skyline Boulevard in the Bay Area. Because residents must voluntarily maintain system operations, the State Water Resources Control Board's Division of Drinking Water has supported the transfer of the smaller utility to Cal Water. Cal Water and King's Mountain first signed their purchase agreement in July 2022, and the transfer remains subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
“We appreciate the CPUC's review of our application to acquire the King's Mountain water system, which enables us to move one step closer to providing an ongoing, reliable supply of safe, clean water to its residents,” said Martin A. Kropelnicki, Group President and CEO.
