Alert! Imposters Are Scamming LADWP Customers By Phone



Persistent phone scammers are deceiving LADWP customers into paying non-existent water and power bills with threats of immediate service shut off. Don’t fall victim to phone scammers posing as LADWP “collection” personnel.

  • LADWP employees will NEVER ask for personal payment information over the telephone. They will never ask you to purchase pre-paid cash cards from a convenience store to pay your utility bill.
  • Payment by telephone can ONLY happen through the Department’s voice automated payment system, not with live employees. LADWP personnel do not accept payment information verbally over the telephone.
  • If you get a call asking for a cash card or credit card number or other personal financial information, hang up and call LAPD.

Safety and service excellence are of utmost importance to LADWP. Victimization of our customers will not be tolerated. Impostors can expect to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Wake-Up Call: Be Prepared for Disaster with a Financial First Aid Kit


Ron Galperin

Wake Up Call

Yesterday’s 4.4 temblor reminded us all that we live in an earthquake zone. And while a lot of us have emergency water and supplies on-hand, being prepared for a disaster means more than that – it means being financially ready.

I-405 Project Team Thanks You for Your Cooperation

From LA Metro:

Dear Community Members,

The I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project Team is pleased to
announce the unprecedented 80-hour northbound I-405 lane
reduction/closures in the Sepulveda Pass has successfully concluded. As
promised, freeway lanes reopened to the public at 5am, Tuesday, February
18, 2014.

Traffic conditions were light and the contractor was able to complete
two separate paving operations simultaneously without major
complications. The compressed time frame of this operation eliminated
several 55-hour weekend freeway closures (and their much greater impacts
to the public) from the schedule.

Metro and its partners want to extend their sincere thanks to the public
for responding to our call to stay away from the construction zone and
enabling us to focus on the work rather than traffic. The success of
this operation was contingent upon public cooperation and you came
through for us. We look forward to opening the northbound high occupancy
vehicle (HOV) lane this summer.

We are paving the road to completion!
