Artificial Turf Fields to be Built in Petaluma, CA

Artificial turf fields are on their way to Petaluma, CA. Three artificial turf fields are scheduled to be installed at a Petaluma park. Artificial turf fields will also be installed later at two high schools who are following suit. Parents have expressed their concerns however concerning risk of bacterial infections, heat conduction, the effects of crumb rubber, and increased risk of physical injuries to players. One parent says that her son suffered a staph infection after scraping his elbow at a summer sports camp in Berkeley last summer. Experts say however that there is no elevated risk of bacterial infections as long as the artificial turf sports field is bleached and cleaned properly regularly.

In fact, artificial turf will be installed on a field hockey field that will be played on during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. The company producing the artificial turf says that the turf will be durable, very low maintenance, and supply a uniform surface across the entire field, with no ruts or shifting areas, and without requiring intervals between games for maintenance and repairs.
