Don't Fall Victim to Utility Scams

hangup_scam

Utility fraud calls and scams can be convincing. Anyone can be at risk of getting scammed, but by knowing our procedures you can help prevent fraud and stay safe from scammers that want to steal your information. Below are some safety procedures to keep in mind:

  • We never ask for payments over the phone or at your home or business. Over the phone payments can only be made through our IVR system, never with a live person. If you receive a call asking to pay, hang up immediately.
  • We never visit residential customers to solicit program enrollment.
  • We never enter a home to check water quality. All water quality visits are scheduled with customers and the water is tested outdoors. No need to be present at the time of testing. 
  • All GWP employees carry photo identification and will display it when asked.

If you notice any suspicious activity near your residence or are contacted by someone collecting money or impersonating City personnel, please contact the Glendale Police Department at 818-548-4911 immediately. For more information on how to stay safe from scams click here.

Think. Act. Save. 
We All Have The Power!

 

GWP announced its new energy conservation campaign "Think. Act. Save. We all have the Power!” The campaign encourages energy conservation among all its residential and commercial customers in order to prevent possible power outages as a result of the shortage of natural gas from the Aliso Canyon storage facility.

Glendale is now in Phase II of Mandatory Water Conservation

 Phase 2 watering schedule

Thanks to improvements in California's water supply and conservation efforts by our customers, Glendale has moved to Phase II of Mandatory Water Conservation. This limits outdoor watering to Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays for no more than 10 minutes at each watering station.

We appreciate all that our residents have done to conserve water, and despite the ease in the guidelines, we still encourage you to keep conserving.
