The City of Greeley has been announced as one of the winning cities in National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation. Greeley was the winning city in the Western region among cities with a population over 100,000. Thank you to everyone in Greeley who took the Challenge!
The Wyland Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation is a non-profit national community service competition developed by the Wyland Foundation to see which cities can best inspire residents to make a series of informative through easy-to-use online pledges to reduce water and energy usage during the month of April.
Cities were divided into four regions (West, Midwest, South and Northeast) and categorized by population (5,000-30,000 residents, 30,001-100,000 residents, 100,000+ residents). Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge win. Participants in the winning cities are eligible to win prizes, including a Toyota Prius Hybrid, home water makeover kits, and more. The individual winners will be announced in a few weeks. Most importantly, participants will see real results based on simple actions they can do to save water and energy and prevent pollution. Residents will also discover resources in our local area to take their commitment of conservation even further, from regional water and energy resource issues to cost-saving tips at home.
