Cities nationwide to compete to see who can be most “water wise”

With at least 36 states facing water shortages this year, mayors across the nation will be asking residents to make a commitment to conserve water and cut pollution by participating in a national contest aimedat drastically slashing water and energy use across the country- and in return, residents can win a new Toyota Prius Plug-in , water saving fixtures, and hundreds of other prizes.

In addition to helping the environment, the mayors earn bragging rights about winning the Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, a non-profit competition, April 1-30, to see which leaders can best inspire their residents to make a series of informative, easy to use online pages to reduce water and energy usage.

“Whether its drought conditions in the West or the high costs of energy related to water use in the East, saving water has become one of the most talked about issues facing the nation today,” said Wyland, artist and president of the Wyland Foundation.  “This gives city leaders a way to supplement their awareness efforts in a friendly, spirited way.”

Presented nationally by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota, with support from the U.S. EPA’s Office of Water, National League of Cities, U.S. Forest Service, The Toro Company, Wondergrove Kids, Bytelaunch, and WaterSmart Software, mayors nationwide are encouraged to challenge their residents to conserve water, save energy, and reduce pollution on behalf of their city at www.mywaterpledge.com throughout the month of April.

To participate, residents enter the name of their city at mywaterpledge.com, and then make a series of online pledges to conserve water on behalf of their city.  Cities compete in the following population categories: (5,000 – 29,999 residents, 30,000 – 99,999 residents, 100,000 – 299,999 residents, 300,000-599,999 residents, and 600,000+ residents).  Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in their population category are deemed the winner.  Residents from those cities are entered to win an array of environmentally positive prizes.
