Heat, water restrictions ravage lawns across Mass.

NATICK, Mass. — The Boston area has seen 10 days with temperatures in the 90s this July, compared to just four days in July last year.

With the heat and drought this summer, water use restrictions have been put in place to restrict non-essential outdoor watering in counties across the state of Massachusetts. An it's taking a toll on some parks and lawns.

The restrictions include things like watering lawns in an effort to conserve water for drinking and emergency uses.
