Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation

​Mayor Karen Hunt is joining mayors across the country in asking residents to make a long-term commitment to manage water resources more wisely by taking part in the annual Wayland National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation. 

The annual challenge, which runs from April 1-30, 2018, is a non-profit national community service campaign to see which leaders can best inspire their residents to make a series of informative and easy-to-do online pledges at mywaterpledge.com to use water more efficiently, reduce pollution and save energy. 

"Coppell is a water conscientious city," said Mayor Karen Hunt. "From xeriscape medians with native, draught tolerant plants and drip irrigation systems to a proactive water loss program, the City works to conserve one of our most precious resources, and we ask residents to do the same. This Challenge presents an easy and fun way to become more water aware." 

To participate in the challenge, visit mywaterpledge.com and take the series of online pledges to conserve water on behalf of the Coppell. Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the Challenge are entered into drawings for hundreds of eco-friendly prizes, including home improvement gift cards, home irrigation equipment, and the Grand Prize of $5,000 Home Utility Bill Payment. Challenge participants can also nominate a deserving charity that would benefit from receiving a 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. The Challenge features additional resources for residents to take their commitment of conservation even further, from regional water and energy resources to cost-saving tips at home. 

The National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation is presented by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota, with support from the U.S. EPA WaterSense, The Toro Company, National League of Cities, Conserva Irrigation and Earth Friendly Products. All prizes are offered through the Wyland Foundation, and the City of Coppell is not involved in winner selection.
