Can you toss some grass seed down and point that F'er towards your yard????
I've given up on trying to get grass to grow there. Eventually green weeds will fill in
Do you have dogs? Could also be grubs.
Looks like they're trying to make rainbows...
Yes on dogs, no on grubs. The issue is my dog doesnt pee there. I had trees taken down a few years ago and the area was covered with roots, this spring they were finally rotted enough for me to pull out of the ground.
Dude, there literally is NO water conservation at all done in MA.
You want to see water conservation, drive thru AZ or CO...
Every year in Franklin we have a water ban, the only reason we have it is because Franklin refuses to halt building and they can't get the water out of the ground fast enough.
Looks like they're doing water main work on that street and they're disinfecting or flushing the pipe.
Taunton is the only town in our area that does NOT have a water ban. For now, we have an overabundance of water. So bleep just about everyone else. LOL.
Some day the Common-wealth may change that and make Taunton/Newbeffah provide their "excess" waters to other cities and towns in the region. Best not to piss them off. Taunton (and possibly NB) are basically telling the other cities and towns to pound sand.
Depends on "how much" but a lot of towns already literally sell water to other towns.
Actually, last year we did have a partial water ban in Taunton. For a month or two, we couldn't have any unattended outside water running between 5am and 6pm. It wasn't really enforced though, as several of my neighbors with irrigation systems had them running several times throughout the day.
New lines are going in, when I replaced my water line 4 years ago the town went to shut off the valve to my house so they could do the tie in. The valve was frozen and they snapped it trying to close it. My water line was last replaced in the 20s. It was a rotted mess.
It might be wishful thinking but why don't they just get a couple of old tankers and fill them up instead of letting the water go down the storm drain.
Probably because this is cheaper and the risk of the water being contaminated while sitting in a truck is too great.
They could use it for watering the town fields... the ones that are still made of grass.
I look at this and think "Weeeee!"
Im in Mendon and Franklin is drinking our milkshake
Probably not. It should have a high level of chlorine in it for disinfection. Not sure how the grass would like it.
"Adapt, Overcome, Survive..."
Such Confuse- in most towns in MA people use the drinking water supply to water their grass and it's just fine....
The only time I don't use it is for new plants but once they are growing, it's all I use. The banana trees like tap water.
You leave a pitcher of tap water out overnight and the chlorine dissipates.
“Higher” than normal levels. Like higher than swimming pools high.
Is that why I always find the warm spot...?
Hey. How far South is Franklin, anyways...?
You too can start a tropical fruit Plantation before global warming makes it too hot. I have seedlings in the karma section.
Lol. So do you just stick a banana in the dirt... face down?
Years of practice! I had one that was almost 8 feet tall and was starting to put out fruit before it snapped in a hurricane. It's tough dragging it in the house during the winter.
We got water! Expect Amazon drone delivering the rest of the package in the next 24 hours:
They did this behind us and my son asked for a picture. He’s going to a great E4 in the military.
Actually whenever work is done to a well a half gallon minimum is dumped in with the new pump and because everything is stirred up you need to purge the sediment out thru a hose into the yard.
One well pump replacement I put a sprinkler on the end of the hose. That area was the greenest area in the lawn for a while.
