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.

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.
