Feedback: Grass benefits from lot runoff
July 3, 2008 · Updated 10:05 PM
The cost for herbicides for Island County for 2003 was $730,000. Much of this was to kill grass in and along public roadways.
Current Department of Ecology policy requires cleaning parking lots run-off at a cost of millions to taxpayers and developers. For what? The phantom poison falling from vehicles just doesnt exist! It is a fanciful fraud concocted for propaganda purposes in flagrant disregard of the truth!
The proof of this can be seen by looking at the edges of parking lots and highways. This is where the grass is the strongest, the thickest and the greenest. This is proof that the grass is, at best, being fertilized by vehicles not poisoned! But why complain about this and kill this lush grass? All these unneeded costs add to either the cost of production of houses or to your taxes.
