Question:
Does the Department of Public Works provide water and power services? If so, in which areas?

ANSWER:
The Los Angeles County Waterworks Districts is one of approximately 200 water purveyors in the county. We provide water service to approximately 68,143 active service accounts throughout the County via five County Waterworks Districts as follows:
We serve the City of Lancaster, portions of the City of Palmdale and other communities in the Antelope Valley (about 57,313 accounts); The Acton area (about 1,405 accounts); The Valverde area (northwest of Magic Mountain with about 1,354 accounts); Kagel Canyon (about 249 accounts in the northern San Fernando Valley); The City of Malibu and portions of Topanga Canyon (about 7,519 accounts). We also provide water service to about 300 accounts in the Marina del Rey area.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works does not provide electric power service. Most of the residents of Los Angeles County receive electric power from the Southern California Edison. The cities of Los Angeles, Azusa, Pasadena, Burbank and Glendale have their own water and power service.
