                  California Water Service Group was incorporated in California in 1926 and then reincorporated as Delaware company in 1999. It operates as a holding company with six operating subsidiaries: California Water Service Company, New Mexic...moreo Water Service Company, Washington Water Service Company Hawaii Water Service Company, Inc., and CWS Utility Services and HWS Utility Services LLC and HWS Utility Services LLC. The Company’s business is conducted through its operating subsidiaries. The bulk of the business consists of the production, purchase, storage, treatment, testing, distribution and sale of water for domestic, industrial, public and irrigation uses, and for fire protection. It also provides non-regulated water-related services under agreements with municipalities and other private companies. The n...moreon-regulated services include full water system operation, billing and meter reading services. Non-regulated operations also include the lease of communication antenna sites, lab services, and promotion of other non-regulated services. The Company's water operations are conducted by the Cal Water and CWS Utility Services entities, which provide service to 475,100 customers in 83 California communities through 25 separate districts. Hawaii Water provides service to approximately 4,200 water and wastewater customers on the islands of Maui and Hawaii, including several large resorts and condominium complexes. Washington Water provides domestic water service to approximately 16,000 customers in the Tacoma and Olympia areas. New Mexico Water provides service to approximately 7,600 water and wastewater customers in the Belen, Los Lunas and Elephant Butte areas in New Mexico. Under other contract arrangements, it operates municipally owned water systems, privately owned water systems, and recycled water distribution systems, but is not responsible for all operating costs. Non-regulated revenue received from water system operations is generally determined on a fee-per-customer basis. Non-regulated activities consist mainly of: operating water systems, which are owned by other entities; providing meter reading and billing services; leasing communication antenna sites on its properties; operating recycled water systems; providing lab services for water quality testing; marketing and billing of optional third party insurance program to its residential customers; selling surplus property, and other services as requested by the client. The Company’s operations are subject to environmental regulation by various governmental authorities.lessless
