WaterWise's Director of Operations, Brian Duvardo, will be handling the program.
Duvardo states that the beauty of this program is that customers will be able to work with a contractor and landscaping consultant at an affordable price.
Five years ago, Duvardo was involved in a pilot program with LADWP in partnership with TreePeople for rain guard installations.
250 water-capturing rain guards were installed in the San Fernando Valley.
In 2013, he worked with the Inland Empire Utilities Agency on a program called the Landscape Transformation Program.
Homeowners were given designs to choose from.
Gardens were installed from beginning to end, which involves turf removal, drip irrigation and the induction of new plants and mulch-similar to the turf removal process for the starter gardens.
And more recently, Duvardo worked with the City of Upland to redesign and install a large California native and friendly show garden at Upland's Public Works facility.
WaterWise Consulting, Inc. is proud to welcome Brian Duvardo to its team.Brian was hired as Programs Director and will be working on various programs for WaterWise and Green Media Creations (GMC).Brian has been working in the water conservation industry for over 5 years in both the private and public sectors.
He "accidently" found his passion for conservation while working with at-risk youth in Los Angeles during a summer program he supervised.
When asked about this experience he responded, "I really saw these teenagers change over the course of the summer in a positive way.
They started to see their work as more than just inventorying toilets or irrigation and it really became an inspiration for me personally.
Ever since then he has worked closely with many public agencies to design and implement various water saving projects from irrigation auditing, irrigation retrofits, installation of California friendly landscaping and rain gardens.
Brian was eventually hired by Upland Public Works to do California friendly landscaping and household hazardous waste.Brian played an integral part in the implementation of Upland Public Work's landscape retrofit program that included removal of all turf and the installation of over 800 individual plants.
He also worked with Upland residents to collect and recycle household hazardous waste in an effort to keep dangerous pollutants from being exposed to the environment.
He enjoys being out in the field and getting his hands dirty but particularly loves the customer service aspect of his job.
"There is really nothing better than knowing you've done a job that far exceeds the client's expectations and seeing their reaction when you show them what you've done.
Brian sees purpose in every conservation project no matter how small because it all adds up.
Brian Duvardo has worked in a variety of jobs including construction and welding, which have prepared him for the work he does today.
Brian now focuses on water conservation efforts while helping young adults gain the career skills they need for the green economy.

Although Brian has had a shifting career path, he is now focused on making a difference in his community's youth.
Brian was originally a business major at Pasadena City College, but later switched to law enforcement in order to make a difference in his community.
After passing all the classes and preparing to attend the sheriff academy, he decided to try to become a probation officer so could make a real difference with youth.
He later became discouraged with the idea of working in probation, after talking with several probation officers, and chose to look for a job where he could take a more proactive stance with young people.
In the July of 2009, Brian got that very fulfilling opportunity when he started working with Generation Water as a field supervisor.He currently serves as the Field Manager.Brian can be reached at (213) 697-0781 x3 or at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
