The City of Grand Junction announced its commitment to water conservation during a regular meeting of the City Council on March 16 by proclaiming the month of April as Water Conservation Month in the City of Grand Junction. Mayor Chuck McDaniel, with the support of Council, is joining other mayors across the country in asking residents to make a commitment to conserve water and protect our vital resource by taking part in the 11th annual Wyland Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation. The challenge runs through the month of April and residents can make their pledge on the Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation website.
“This annual challenge to conserve water, sponsored by the Wyland Foundation here in Grand Junction, reminds us how precious a resource water is,” said Mayor McDaniel. “I hope that what is a short-term challenge for our residents becomes a long-term conversation practice.”
The challenge rewards individual residents who make pledges online at www.mywaterpledge.com to perform specific water-saving activities throughout the month. By simply pledging their commitment to easy water-saving actions, residents are eligible for a chance to win many exciting prizes.
To participate, residents may enter online at www.mywaterpledge.com, and then make a series of online pledges to conserve water on behalf of the City of Grand Junction. One winning city will be determined from five population categories. The city with the most pledges in each population category will win. Residents from the winning cities who take the online pledge will be entered to win hundreds of environmentally friendly prizes, including $3,000 for home utilities, water-saving fixtures, and home improvement gift cards.
