Greeley Mayor John Gates joins mayors in a national competition to see which community generates the most pledges toward being water smart and reducing pollution. The “Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation,” April 1-30, focuses on making minor changes to prevent water waste, reduce pollution, and save energy.

“Our forefathers knew how important water is to Greeley, and so should we,” said Mayor Gates, who will read a water conservation proclamation at the April 4 Greeley City Council meeting. “We owe it to our community and future city residents to be smart with water use.”

Go to and choose from several water-saving practices to adopt, like:

  • Repair leaking faucets, pipes, and toilets
  • Wash full loads of laundry and dishes
  • Turn off sprinklers when it rains

“Water conservation shouldn’t be limited to one month per year,” Gates said. “All we have to do is pledge to make a few small changes in our daily lives to conserve water. If we do that, we will all be winners.”

Residents who take the water pledge can win $3,000 for home utility payments. In addition, participants can receive a separate prize for a $500 home improvement shopping spree and daily prizes.

The Mayor’s Challenge is an excellent opportunity for teachers to introduce water conservation practices in their classrooms. K-12 teachers can take the pledge on behalf of their students and receive prizes if their city wins. Students can take the pledge at and help improve the city’s ranking.

Take the pledge at anytime in April. Check back to see how your pledge helps Greeley compete against other communities with similar populations.
