The dog days of summer can be measured by the frequency of visits from the ice cream truck, the prevalence of sprinklers as well as the climbing thermometer readings. Front yard sprinklers are fun for kids and sometimes necessary to keep our lawns green and healthy during summer drought.
We value our water resources and share responsibility for protecting and conserving those water resources whenever possible.
When we water our lawns too much or incorrectly, the excess water flows into storm drains, taking lawn chemicals, leaves and litter with it. This pollution threatens Dublin’s streams, rivers and the wildlife that utilizes the waterways.
