Over the next two months, LADWP will be presenting information on the Equity Metrics Data Initiative (EMDI) to several Neighborhood Councils and community groups throughout the City. LADWP staff will be previewing this presentation with the LA Board of Water and Power Commissioners during their meeting on Tuesday, September 19 at 10 a.m. We invite all interested customers, Neighborhood Councils and other stakeholders to tune in to the Board meeting to learn more about this important data- driven initiative that tracks and reports how LADWP spends ratepayer funds across the City. You may also attend in person at 111 N. Hope St, Room 1555-H, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

What is the Equity Metrics Data Initiative?
As part of the LADWP Rate Action approved by the Mayor and City Council earlier this year, and subsequently reviewed and approved by the Board, LADWP established the Equity Metrics Data Initiative (EMDI) to track, measure and report on how LADWP programs are provided to all LADWP customers and residents of Los Angeles. The EMDI establishes a framework that helps ensure that we provide fair and reasonable services to all ratepayers.
