    Oh well, winners finally announced and Tucson came in 2nd under Aurora, Colorado for cities of our size. Better luck next year. Thanks to all who pledged. Tucson won in 2013, #2 in 2014, #2 in 2015. Not bad overall.

    I don’t object to these kinds of things, but let’s keep in mind who is using most of the water (hint: not individuals). Here’s of the many links for CA (personal use is 4% of the state water use), I don’t have one on tap for Arizona:

      If you mean that most of the water is being used for animal husbandry, that was the focus of the “Cowspiracy” movie recently seen at the Loft Theater. This water challenge is just to enable Tucsonans to become more conscious of their own water use, and to win prizes once again. Ivan M. won the Prius in Tucson in 2013, plus prizes to these others: http://www.mywaterpledge.com/campaign/national-campaign-2015/
