 2019 National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation

 

Throughout the month of April, Santa Maria Mayor, Alice Patino joins other mayors across the United States by asking residents to make a long-term commitment to managing water resources and take the pledge to conserve water. Visit www.cityofsantamaria.org/utilities to watch Mayor Alice Patino encouraging Santa Maria residents to team with her in making the pledge.

The annual National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation is a friendly community-based competition that encourages residents to make series of water conservation pledges on behalf of their city. Winning cities are those with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in their population category and earn a chance to win any of hundreds of great prizes. 

This year, residents are eligible to win $3,000 toward home utilities, a Toyota Highlander Hybrid for a deserving local charity, and hundreds of other ecofriendly prizes. To participate in this year’s challenge, visit www.mywaterpledge.com. The website also features additional resources for residents to further their commitment to water conservation, including cost-saving tips for the home.

This 8th National Challenge is presented by the Wyland Foundation, Toyota, The Toro Company, Earth Friendly Products (ECOS), Conserva Irrigation, and home water fixture retrofits from EcoSystems Inc. Last year, more than $50,000 in prizes were awarded to nearly 300 residents across the United States.
