Default VzwLocationManagerService and battery

Is this for E911 service? After getting rid of the recent Google Play Services battery bug (wow was that killing my battery...) I now note this app/process consuming a significant % of my power (~2%). I do have the Verizon Location Services diabled in (Settings>Locations) but left the other options turned on. I've googled around quite a bit to see if this can be manually disabled but no luck. Thanks in advance for any solutions/tips.
