ADELAIDE, SA, AUSTRALIA - MARCH 01: Members of the Novar Gardens Bowling club play a game on an artificial lawn March 1, 2008 in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. The club purchased the artificial lawns nine years ago and will be updating the artificial greens this year with a version that requires zero water. It will cost them $200,000.00 AUS$ to lay the new lawn, but will be cheaper than real grass given water restrictions. Many clubs that turned their nose at Novar for switching to artificial lawns are now looking to them for advice in the midst of the drought. Adelaide depends on water from the Murray-Darling Basin irrigation system and while the city uses far less water than irrigating farmers, the city has been actively promoting and implementing schemes that save water. The Murray-Darling Basin has been plagued with severe drought since the late 1990s and many growers and policy makers are being forced to find more efficient irrigation systems.
