I know of a person who lives in one of those cities, that then reversed it and where paying for people to reinstall their lawns. Turns out the stone lawns where getting so warm that they were increasing the temperature in the houses, resulting in more electricity usage. The increase in electricity was much more than the savings in water
Really? Can you document this? Local newspaper article or trade mag article? Can you at least name the city? Sounds like a bogus story to me. Trees and the shade they provide would be more of an issue, but lawns removed causing houses to heat up inside? I don't buy it.

What I question is replacing turf with gravel and drought tolerant plants and then it raising temps inside houses and then people replanting turf and getting paid for that...

sorry, I haven't been on in a few days. I just sent the guy I know an email to find out what town he lives in in NV, I also asked him if he had a link to anything on it.
