Question from Fran

Does anyone know if cities have started using non-toxic or biodegradable paint when power companies mark underground utilities? Our yard and mulch heap got marked, so I removed every scrap of mulch, every clump of painted dirt, every red, yellow or orange blade of grass! (It took over three days! Thankfully there was no rain at all!) I even dug out vegetables that had been painted! I filled more than 3 garbage bags of dirt and mulch due to having to get under the paint, which would have later caused me reactions every time I gardened and also ate the vegetables!!!!! What an invasion. Are there ways to prevent this, and are there cities NOT doing this to their customers? (Mine is a little behind the times…)
