To paraphrase the opening of Charles Dickens' Tale of Two Cities, "it was the best of times and the worst of times." He could as easily have been describing the year 2010. We find ourselves in a time of great economic and environmental challenge. Of all the challenges water is the sleeping giant that must be dealt with. And one of the greatest challenges to clean, clear drinking water is the ever-present lawn that surrounds our homes and businesses.40 million acres of lawn makes grass America's largest crop. We pour 30% of our precious drinking water on our lawn - water that we've paid to pipe, pump, treat, chlorinate nS fluoridate! Ever wonder why there's a water ban after a week of rain? Did you know that many communities use 3 to 5 times the amount of water on a warm summer day than they use on a winter day.
