Long Beach Water Recognized for High Customer Satisfaction in Western United States by J.D. Power

Long Beach, California – Long Beach Water ranked in the top seven in customer satisfaction in the Western United States, ahead of other major California cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego; and, nationwide, Long Beach Water achieved a higher customer satisfaction rating than the water utilities serving the cities of New York, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Baltimore, according to a press release by J.D. Power on their 2019 Water Utility Residential Customer Satisfaction Survey results. The press release notes that J.D. Power, a global leader in consumer insights, measured satisfaction of residential customers of utilities nationwide who deliver water to at least 400,000 people. The overall customer satisfaction is measured within six factors: water delivery; price to customers; water conservation; billing and payment; communications; and customer service.

“We’re very proud to be recognized for this high honor of customer satisfaction. We are committed every day to provide our community with exceptional water and exceptional service,” said Chris Garner, general manager of Long Beach Water. “It is heartening that this press release provides the independent verification and recognition of the very high regard that our Long Beach residents have for the professionalism exhibited daily by our Long Beach Water employees.”

“On behalf of the Long Beach Board of Water Commissioners, I want to thank our hard-working Long Beach Water staff for this recognition,” said Gloria Cordero, president of the Long Beach Board of Water Commissioners. “This survey confirms what the Commission and General Manager Chris Garner have known — that our employees have provided and will continue to provide the highest level of customer service 365 days a year.”
