LINCOLN -- Several methods of watering the fairways of Lincoln's public golf courses and city parks are being considered by Parks and Recreation officials, to help deal with the hot and dry conditions. They've had to use some potable or drinking water to irrigate some of the courses, since not all of them have their own irrigation wells. Parks and Rec director Lynn Johnson told Dave and Cathy on the KFOR Morning Show Wednesday morning they're working on a plan to utilize water from the public swimming pools for watering golf courses and city parks. He says it takes up to 48 hours to clear pool water of chlorine. The water could be used to hydrate trees in parks and other public spaces. Johnson says he thinks they will be able to pump the water out of the Highlands Pool and let run down into the irrigation pond at Highlands Golf Course. He adds they may look at doing the same thing next year with pools that are next to ball fields.
