The Metropolitan Water District (MWD) issued a press release asking residents in Pasadena and the Foothill Communities (La Crescenta, La Canada and Altadena) to curtail water use during a pipeline shutdown starting February 21 – February 28. Although Glendale Water & Power customers are not affected by the shutdown, approximately 2500 Glendale residents and businesses in the La Crescenta area are impacted because their water service is provided by Crescenta Valley Water District. Glendale Water & Power will not be adversely impacted by this outage because we have more than one connection with MWD and have taken mitigations and coordinated with MWD to ensure that water service to our customers is not interrupted. Customers of Pasadena Water & Power, Crescenta Valley Water and Foothill Water Districts need to curtail their water use, especially outdoor watering during this outage period. However, we encourage our customers to continue with their conservation efforts. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our customer service department (818) 548-3300.
