The latest flap over artificial turf has caused some people to rethink their commercial irrigation and landscaping plans. In case you missed it, the Consumer Product Safety Commission came out and began openly questioning the safety of certain types of synthetic turf. By all media accounts, their concerns center on containments allegedly inherent in ground rubber products.
Of course that prompted a quick, decisive response by the Synthetic Turf Council, scientists, environmentalists and a number of others who wanted to wade into the conversation. They largely allege that the CPSC has is all wrong and the majority of man-made turf products are safe on all fronts. And some of them cited studies to prove it. Others urged caution and suggested doing further research.
