Keep Mylar Balloons Away From Power Lines

GWP would like to remind you to hold on to mylar balloons and keep them from flying away. These balloons can get caught in power lines and cause significant damage to equipment as well as power outages for customers. Watch the video below to see what happens when mylar balloons fly into power lines.

GWP Water Refunds 

In May 2019, the Glendale City Council authorized a settlement to resolve two lawsuits involving the City’s water rates adopted in 2014. In December 2018, the California Court of Appeal found that the City’s water rates complied with Proposition 218 on 3 of the 4 issues contested in the appeal, and the settlement agreement resolves this remaining issue, as well as another issue that was not appealed. Under the settlement, the City will provide credits on the water utility bills for existing Single Family Residential and Multi Family Residential water customers who used water in the highest tiers (Tier 4 for Single Family and Tier 2 for Multi Family) from October 20, 2016 – June 30, 2018. The amount of the credit will be $0.52/Hundred Cubic Feet (HCF) for Single Family customers who used water in Tier 4 and $0.05/HCF for Multi Family customers who used water in Tier 2 for the stated period. For those who used water in these highest tiers during the stated period, but are no longer GWP customers, the City will make refunds available.

Existing GWP water customers who qualify for the credits do not need to do anything to receive the credit on their utility bill. Credits will be applied to utility bills beginning on August 1, 2019. Former customers who no longer have an active GWP water account but used water in the highest tiers during the stated period as described above may receive a refund for the amount of the credit.

If you are not an existing GWP water customer and believe you may be eligible to receive a refund, click here to access the online Request For Refund form.

Power Shut-off Advertisements 

Recently, you may have heard advertising announcements on the radio regarding electric power shut-offs that could occur for safety reasons during extreme and potentially dangerous weather conditions. These radio ads are sponsored by the large investor owned utilities in California including Pacific Gas & Electric, San Diego Gas & Electric, and Southern California Edison here in our area. While these electric utilities do not control or manage our customers at Glendale Water & Power, some of our critical transmission lines used to import power into the City are under the control of Southern California Edison. During periods of extreme hot weather and/or red flag fire warnings, these transmission lines could be shut off to prevent the chance of wildfires and other related emergencies. In the event that this does occur and whenever possible we will notify our affected customers ahead of the action and keep you informed as to the situation throughout the event.
