Certified & Rated: Santa Ana’s First “Green” Building Earns Silver Rating


Santa Ana works hard to reduce its environmental footprint, increase the reliability of its water system, and improve quality of life for the community. One example is the fall 2014 renovation of the Walnut Pump Station. This older pump station was built in 1953 to pump water into the City’s pipe system from an underground storage reservoir.

Upon review of the renovation design, the Walnut Pump Station was verified for its water and energy efficiency. It also was awarded a silver rating by Envision, a third-party rating system used to evaluate and rate the community, environmental and economic benefits of construction projects.
