Median Project Median Landscape Conversion & Water Conservation Project
67th Ave. Roadway Median (South of Beardsley Rd.)
Glendale’s Transportation Division and the city’s Water Services Department have teamed up to launch a pilot water conservation project to convert a portion of existing water-dependent grass area located within the center median on 67th Avenue, just south of Beardsley Rd., to water-conserving artificial turf.

Over the next several weeks, crews will be on site performing median landscape conversion activities;minor lane restrictions or temporary lane closures can be anticipated. Along with the removal of the existing grass and irrigation system and installation of artificial turf, work includes the installation of a new, more efficient irrigation system to provide water to the existing pine trees using the current water source. Work on the pilot median conversion project is slated to be completed by late June. View Flyer

Do You Know Where Your Water and Sewer Line Service Responsibility Begins?

Water Services provides safe and reliable drinking water, and wastewater services to Glendale customers. Each service is delivered through thousands of miles of pipe in the water distribution and wastewater collections systems.

For potable water services, the customers’ responsibility begins right after the water meter all the way to the residence/business. Water Department’s responsibility includes the water meter up to the water mains, and the right-of-way directly above it.

For wastewater services, the customer’s responsibility begins right after the city’s right-of-way all the way to the residence/business. Water Department’s responsibility includes the right-of-way up to the sewer mains.

Cease the grease

How to Prevent Sanitary Sewer Clogs from Happening to You!

When fats, oils, and grease from daily kitchen use are poured into drains, either in homes or businesses, it can solidify in your pipes and cause costly sewer blockages and overflows. This can potentially damage homes, cause raw sewage to backup into city streets, threaten public health, and cause damage to the environ­ment. The easiest way to solve the problem of grease blockage is to keep grease out of the drains in the first place.
