National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation

In Conservation, What River Are You Made Of? by Elizabeth Dougherty

Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation Launched

Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, March 30-April 30, encourages residents to save water on behalf of their city and win more than $50,000 in prizes. Residents in U.S. cities will compete throughout the month of April to see whose city is the most “water wise.”

Throughout the month of April, San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee is challenging San Francisco’s residents and businesses to show the nation how wisely they use water by participating in the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation – an online pledge drive to conserve water, save energy, and reduce pollution. The challenge is a friendly competition between cities across the United States to commit the public to save millions of gallons of water during Earth Month. San Francisco has joined the challenge among major U.S. cities including Los Angeles, Denver, Tucson and Honolulu.

The mayors of those cities earn bragging rights from winning the Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, a non-profit competition, March 30-April 30, to see which leaders can best inspire their residents to make a series of informative, easy-to-use online pledges aimed at drastically slashing water and energy use across the nation. In return residents can win a Toyota Prius Hybrid from national presenting partner Toyota, water saving fixtures, and hundreds of prizes. The program is in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act.
