   land - sustainabile landscape plan  
carbon emission reduction:

As part of the County’s Sustainable Landscape plan several departments - Facilities Management, Metropolitan Water Board, Parks, WEP (Pump Stations only), E911, Jamesville Prison, and Hillbrook - were asked to examine their mowing practices and identify areas where mowing could be reduced or discontinued. By eliminating and reducing mowing on 92.64 acres of land, the county has reduced over 10 tons of carbon emissions.
