Glendale Water & Power’s electric section was recognized this week for providing customers with the highest degree of reliable and safe service with the Diamond Reliable Public Power Provider designation from the American Public Power Assn.

“It is the highest recognition a public electric utility can receive,” said Glendale Water & Power General Manager Steve Zurn, adding that the award presented on Monday “represents a much appreciated recognition of the utility’s staff commitment to provide excellent customer service.”

A utility receives the designation if it performs well in these categories: reliability, workforce development and system improvement. Only 84 of the country’s 2,000 public power utilities received the designation.
