Celebrating 100 Years of Reliable Water Service, 1914 - 2014.

When Glendale was incorporated in 1906, there were at least 14 private water companies operating in the general area. By 1913, amid citizen complaints about water service and pollution, the city placed a $248,000 bond issue before voters to provide funds to purchase and improve the system to serve a city of 14,000.

The bond measure passed, and the municipal water system began operation in 1914. As Glendale grew by annexation, other water companies were purchased and added to the system. During its first five years of operation, the municipal water system relied almost entirely upon water flowing by gravity from Verdugo Canyon. As the city expanded, the utility turned to local groundwater wells to meet additional needs.


As the decades passed, GWP also made significant improvements to our water storage and distribution system, and in 2008 identified all capital improvement projects necessary to further improve the system over the next 20 years. We make water quality our highest priority, and meet or exceed all standards to ensure the safety of water served to our customers.

Glendale Water & Power's one hundred years of reliable service was recognized by the Glendale City Council on Tuesday, September 30 with the Mayor's Proclamation and a plaque from the American Water Works Association. Stop by the GWP offices at 141 N. Glendale Ave., and see the historical water section display in the Perkin's building lobby on the 1st floor.
