Park weeds

According to the city's 2006 pesticide-free parks report, Surge was applied to the ballfields at Holcom Park, Broken Arrow and Ice Field in April 2006.

Surge contains the "new active ingredient" sulfentrazone. In 2006, the manufacturer, PBI/Gordon Corp., withdrew its request to register the product for use in New York, in part because the state's department of environmental conservation found it would lead to "deterioration of groundwater/drinking water resources in New York State."

But what do those rubes know?
