Firefighters, too, seek to reduce water use due to drought
Water will not be needed to keep this artificial grass green at the headquarters of the Menlo Park Fire Protection District on Middlefield Road in Menlo Park. The shrubs along the perimeter do need water, but too much of it. They have been pulled since this photo was taken and drought-tolerant plants will be taking their places, officials say. Water conservation has become a priority for the district, extending deep into daily operations. (Photo by Natalia Nazarova)
