Glendale is in Phase III of Mandatory Water Conservation
California is in its 4th year of exceptional drought. Governor Jerry Brown issued an Executive Order on April 1, 2015 directing the State Water Resources Board to implement mandatory water reductions to reduce water usage by 25 percent statewide. Glendale is now in Phase III of its Mandatory Water Conservation Ordinance. Customers can only water landscapes on Tuesdays and Saturdays for no more than 10 minutes at each watering station.
We appreciate all that our residents have done to conserve water, and we urge you to keep conserving and changing habits that lead to more conservation.

How much water are we saving?
We are also conserving and leading by example
GWP recently stopped its Parcher Plaza wall water feature in order to conserve water. It will eventually turn into a CA Friendly planter. We have put in a drought tolerant CA Friendly Garden across from the wall feature and will continue to do more of these demonstration type gardens around the City. We are working with our Parks department and have stopped watering medians that were using potable water.
Quality Assurance Program
Glendale Water & Power field crews will be checking electric and water meters as part of our quality assurance program. Crews will be wearing GWP uniforms, with quality control vests, they will be carrying easily identifiable and proper GWP identification and driving GWP trucks.
