water the grass
Staying Green

Due to new grass plantings two weeks ago, the City has given the Library permission to water more often for the plantings to grow properly.  A groundwater irrigation well supplies the water for the underground automatic irrigation systems used by the Library and Fuerst Park.  The rain water from the entry canopy roof is also used to irrigate perimeter planting beds.
