1998 – 2001 Timelines: TreePeople History

  • TreePeople is part of the LADWP’s Cool Schools Program to green campuses throughout the City of Los Angeles. As part of the program, TreePeople retrofits Broadus Elementary School with a stormwater management system including an underground infiltration field that redirects stormwater from surrounding streets to help reduce flooding and recharge the aquifer; and Open Charter Elementary School that receives an underground cistern designed to take stormwater that used to run off the campus and capture and use it to irrigate the landscape.
