TORRANCE, Calif. — California Water Service (Cal Water), the largest subsidiary of California Water Service Group (NYSE:CWT), today announced that it will continue to operate and maintain the West Basin Municipal Water District (West Basin) recycled water distribution system through 2021.

"We are so pleased that the West Basin board voted unanimously to extend our operations and maintenance agreement. Our team works hard to provide quality, service, and value, and we are honored to continue our partnership with West Basin," said Cal Water's Rancho Dominguez Acting District Manager Dan Trejo.
