Pasadena Water & Power



    In celebration of green living, Earth Day, and Water Awareness Month, Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) will encourage sustainable living practices during the months of April and May with support of numerous events and workshops. In addition, PWP is encouraging the community to make a water pledge for a chance to win a Toyota Prius (courtesy of the Wyland Foundation). 

    PWP will also be hosting educational workshops on how to create Drought Tolerant Landscapes; PWP will swap old inefficient irrigation controllers for new Weather Based Irrigation Controllers (free of charge) at Descanso Gardens on May 31st, and will encourage the community to stock up on earth friendly LEDs this spring for a fraction of the cost at PWP’s online LED Webshop.
