Welcome to the Board of Water and Power Commissioners Website
The five-member Los Angeles Board of Water and Power Commissioners oversees the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) to support the growth and vitality of the City of Los Angeles, its residents, businesses and the communities it serves by providing safe, reliable and cost-effective water and power in a customer-focused and environmentally responsible manner. In October 2020, our commissioners made Los Angeles city government history as the first all-female board to lead LADWP and any LA city department. The Board meets regularly on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 10:00 a.m. LADWP is the nation’s largest municipal utility serving more than 4 million residents of Los Angeles, its businesses and visitors. The utility has a workforce of more than 11,000 employees. For more than 100 years, LADWP has delivered reliable water and power service to Los Angeles.
Water and Power: Building a Stronger Los Angeles
The commission has set priorities and initiatives for LADWP that showcase its role in making our city stronger. Since securing a reliable water supply over a century ago and building the electric utility infrastructure to power the city, the Department has played a key role to promote the growth of Los Angeles from a small pueblo to the second largest city in America. Today, the Department continues to build a Los Angeles that has strong infrastructure and a thriving economy while providing reliable water and electric service at affordable rates. Under the Board's leadership, LADWP is on the path to achieving 100% renewable energy, expanding local water supplies to reduce reliance on imported water, building a diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce, and partnering with neighborhood councils and community-based organizations to better support our customers, especially those in underserved communities.
