LADWP to Brief Community Representatives about Equity Metrics Data Initiative

LADWP will provide a series of presentations to community representatives at upcoming meetings on the LADWP Equity Metrics Data Initiative (EMDI), established to track, measure and report on how LADWP programs are provided to all LADWP customers and residents of Los Angeles.

Approved as part of the 2016 LADWP water and electric rate action, the EMDI establishes a data-driven framework that assesses how well programs, services and resources are distributed and used throughout the city, both geographically and demographically, to see whether any disparities exist. Data collection and analysis through the EMDI will provide important information about LADWP’s services and operations, and help ensure that all customers are reached with fairness and equity.
