Anthem Blue Cross Replaces 554,000 Sq Ft of Lawn with California Friendly Landscape
Anthem Blue Cross, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and LA City Councilmember Bob Blumenfield recently cut the ribbon on 12.7 acres of California friendly landscape, made possible by the LA DWP’s incentive program, at Anthem’s Woodland Hills campus.
The entire cost of the project, which took approximately 5 months, was offset by a rebate of $1.1 million from LADWP. Specifics of the project include:
12.7 Acres of lawn replaced, or 554,000 square feet
More than 12 million gallons of water expected to be saved per year
Ongoing savings of $85,000 per year, consisting of $65,000 in lower water fees and $20,000 in landscape maintenance savings.
The new vegetation will use a drip irrigation system.
