Christian Community Credit Union begins water conservation efforts with drought-tolerant landscaping

SAN DIMAS, CA (May 15, 2015) — Christian Community Credit Union replaces the front lawn of its San Dimas branch with drought-tolerant trees, plants, and hardscape materials as part of its ongoing water conservation efforts. The Credit Union will also install a drip irrigation system to further reduce its water consumption. In response to the California Public Utilities Commission’s mandate to reduce water usage by 20%, the Credit Union participated in the SoCal Water $mart’s “Turf Rebate” program. The Credit Union engaged the services of Environs Landscape Architecture, Inc. in Claremont, CA for the landscape design and Meier Brothers Landscape in Duarte, CA for the project. The landscaping project started on May 12, 2015 and is expected to be completed by July 1, 2015.

“Christian Community Credit Union is committed to water conservation to help provide a sustainable future for all Californians,” said John Walling, Christian Community Credit Union President/CEO. “It’s important for us to be good stewards of our natural resources as well as our financial resources. This drought-tolerant landscaping project will allow us to accomplish both.”

Christian Community Credit Union has $600 million in assets and over 30,000 members nationwide. For over 58 years, the Credit Union has served as a financial partner of Christian ministries, churches, and their members. For more information, please call 800.347.CCCU (2228) or visit
