Drought Tolerant Demo – Fire Station Open House

16 May

To celebrate Water Awareness Month, PWP will officially unveil the project at the Drought-Tolerant Demonstration Garden and Fire Station Open House on Saturday, May 19.

The family-friendly event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at:

Fire Station 37

3430 E. Foothill Blvd

Pasadena Water & Power and Pasadena Fire Department will join forces to present a water conservation-themed open house including activities such as landscape design demonstrations, a plant scavenger hunt for kids, station tours, raffle prizes, a meet and greet with firefighters, and more.

“Our fire stations and team work closely with the community,” said Fire Chief Bertral Washington. “This was a great opportunity to showcase the beauty of drought tolerant gardens and demonstrate how easy it can be transform outdoor space and achieve water savings.” A combined total of 9,961 square feet of turf was removed at Fire Stations 32, 33, 36, 37 and 38, which is estimated to save more than 448,245 gallons of water per year.

The installations were completed through a partnership with the Pasadena Housing Department Maintenance Assistance and Services for Homeowners (MASH) program.
