BLOOMFIELD — Bloomfield will be the first city in the country to install a newly developed synthetic turf known as HydroTurf in a median landscaping capacity, according to city and industry officials.

Paul O’Malley, the vice president of sales for Watershed Geo, the manufacturer of HydroTurf, said the product has been tested extensively and was originally designed for drainage ditches and dam spillways.

HydroTurf has been installed on lake banks, dam spillways and in other similar environments, but Bloomfield’s use of it in the medians is unique, officials say.

The city of Española installed HydroTurf last year at its City Hall, according to Robert Buzzell, Watershed Geo’s Field Operations Manager, who was here on Tuesday.

“It’s a pretty interesting little product,” said Bruce Winters, of Winters Construction, which is overseeing the project.

Winters Construction has installed artificial turf in the past. Winters was impressed by the HydroTurf.

“It’s tough,” he said. “It’s hard. Very durable.”

He added that HydroTurf is not the same turf people would find on an athletic field.
