The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is the largest municipal utility in the United States, serving over four million residents. In the video game Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, the player finds numerous documents indicating that LADWP is (somewhat) aware of the Nosferatu Warrens and fleshcrafted ghouls in the city sewers, but chooses to keep sealing off the suspicious areas rather than investigate too deeply.
