Why not spend these dollars on NATURAL SOLUTIONS? Capture rainwater on-site. 1. Build new parks where rainwater can set for awhile and go back into the earth. 2. Encourage homeowners to replace grass with drought tolerant native plants that attract birds, bees, butterflies and other wildlife everyone can enjoy. 3. Stop construction site de-watering at the completion of each project. 4. Daylight buried streams (follow the raindrops on the maps below).
