Relief for Customers Rebuilding after the Woolsey Fire

 
January 15, 2019

We are in the process of cutting/capping water service connections or physically removing meters at properties where a structure was completely lost as required by the Office of Emergency Services before Cal Recycle will clear debris from properties.  This is so that work associated with debri removal and clearing properties doesn’t cause a major line break that could cause flooding on the property and interfere with the clean-up process.

Customers may request for their meters to be re-installed by the District by calling Customer Service at 818-251-2200.

LVMWD Board of Directors authorized the General Manager to provide relief to customers affected by the Woolsey Fire and to facilitate rebuilding efforts in the following ways: 

  • Waive water and wastewater charges for the billing period during which a home was destroyed or rendered uninhabitable due to the fire
  • Reduce bills for water consumed to reflect historical usage, on a case-by-case basis, for customers whose homes were not rendered uninhabitable, but who used an extraordinary amount of water to protect their properties.
  • Develop a policy, in coordination with local cities and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, to expedite the process and minimize the cost for customers to rebuild their homes
