We're Building a Stronger L.A.!
We're transitioning to a 100% carbon-free energy future and expanding our local water supplies to reduce our dependence on purchased water. Through these monumental efforts to transform our future and the essential water and power services we provide today and everyday, we're building a stronger L.A.
This work is made possible by LADWP's more than 11,000 employees and we are always looking to add outstanding members to our team. We were recently ranked as one of the top employers in California by Forbes Magazine.

Lawn Be Gone! FREE Hands on Workshops
Take advantage of the FREE Hands on Workshops that restarted last month! These Hands on Workshops will teach you how to reduce and remove your turf and replace it with a sustainable garden using low water-use, California-friendly, and native plants. You will also learn how to capture rainwater.

The next workshops are in North Hollywood on 10/23 & 10/30. Sign up to attend or consider hosting one of your own.
We're Putting the Pedal to the Metal on Electric Vehicles
The Board of Water and Power Commissioners recently approved a special electric vehicle (EV) commercial charging rate to accelerate the expansion of publicly available, fast vehicle charging stations in its service territory. We will offer two commercial EV electric service rate options to commercial fleet operators, commercial multi-family dwellings and public charging station operators. Both options provide attractive rates to spur infrastructure deployment in L.A. while rewarding charging at off-peak and during high solar generation periods.
Partnering on Water Reliability for Southern California
Under the leadership of Mayor Eric Garcetti, we're partnering with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) to ensure water reliability for Southern California residents during drought conditions. We're committing to give a portion of our State Water Project allocation back to MWD in order to service areas of the region that do not have access to the Colorado River. Instead, we will use the reserves we have built up from past conservation efforts. Let's keep it up, L.A. and work to conserve even more.
Essential Work Continues
Our crews recently upgraded a water regulator station at Lucile St. and Inglewood Blvd. in West L.A., which reduces high water pressure to manageable levels to help ensure delivery of safe and clean drinking water in the area.
Partnering with Neighborhood Councils
We're the only department in the City of Los Angeles with a formal Memorandum of Understanding with Neighborhood Councils committing to regular and ongoing communication about our programs and policies.
