6th Annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation has begun

“My Water Pledge is a friendly competition between cities across the US to see who can be the most “water-wise.” Mayors nationwide will challenge their residents to conserve water, energy and other natural resources on behalf of their city through a series of informative, easy-to-use pledges online.

Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in their population category win. Cities will compete in the following population categories: 5,000-29,999, 30,000-99,999, 100,000-299,999, 300,000-599,999, 600,000+). Participants in the winning cities are eligible to win hundreds of prizes. By the way, your mayor doesn’t have to participate for your city to win… But every person makes a difference! Last year, the challenge awarded more than $50,000 in prizes to nearly 1,000 residents in U.S. cities.”

Please pledge daily till April 30, for this national pledge, which started on April 1.  Tucson won 1st place a few years ago in 2013, so your pledging does count:


Tucson is currently in 2nd place, behind Aurora, Colorado (for cities of our size, 300,000 to 599,999). Incentives to pledge & help Tucson win again:

  • If your city wins and you choose to enter the prize drawing, you are eligible to win one of the following prizes:
    • Grand Prize: All-new 2017 Toyota Prius Prime
    • $500 Shopping Spree at a Home Improvement Store
    • 200 Eco-friendly “Green Your Home” Cleaning Kits from Earth Friendly Products (ECOS)
