A Not So Sustainable Campus
On the UP campus, the sprinklers run all the time. The campus decision makers want to keep the grass green and make the campus look pretty, but they are not only running the sprinklers in the summer — they run them all year round. They run them when it’s already raining. They run them when they aren’t even hitting the grass — they water the sidewalks. To my knowledge, this has been brought to the attention of campus decision makers multiple times, and there has been no change. It is worth a little bit of brown grass to have a more sustainable campus.
