Cal-Am takes great care of Coronado! In addition to their very reasonable water rates, they respond very quickly when crisis moments occur like when water mains rupture or when fire hydrants get hit by cars. If that wasn't enough, they have moved their regional headquarters here to Coronado (on the second story of the building where Chu Dynasty used to be located.) We are lucky to have a water provider who cares about our city and its residents!!
