The annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation is underway this April, and Mayor Wes Mays invites Coppell residents and businesses to participate alongside the City of Coppell in the national competition to conserve water resources.
The competition aims to educate and inspire residents, businesses, and schools to learn more about their water resources and save water by pledging to do easy, at-home tasks such as fixing leaky faucets, planting Texas SmartScape plants, and adjusting sprinkler settings. Residents and businesses are encouraged to sign up at mywaterpledge.com.
Coppell remains committed to being a water conscientious city. As spring and summer approach, now is a perfect time for residents to participate in water conservation efforts and encourage each other to take the online pledge.
In order to better foster a family community for a lifetime, and to do its part in the water conservation effort, the City uses low flow faucets, toilets, and automatic sinks in its facilities. Additionally, the City has been exploring options to update the design of medians to further water conservation.
Visit mywaterpledge.com to see how much water you can save and to take the pledge on behalf of Coppell. Residents who take the pledge can choose to enter drawings for daily prizes like Wyland mugs, reusable soap bottles, water timers, and home improvement gift cards. The foundation will also pay up to $3,000 worth of utilities for five lucky participants and donate 100 Zenni eyeglasses made from recycled plastics to one school from each winning city.
The National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation is presented by the Wyland Foundation and has support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) organization WaterSense, The TORO Company, National League of Cities, and eyeglasses company Zenni. All prizes are offered through the Wyland Foundation, and the City of Coppell is not involved in winner selection.
