The City of Olathe has joined the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, a friendly competition between cities across the United States, held April 1-30, to see who can be the most “water wise.” Mayors and civic leaders nationwide have challenged their residents to conserve water on behalf of their city in an effort to drastically decrease water and energy use across the country.
Join Olathe Mayor Michael Copeland and make your pledge today at MyWaterPledge.com. This pledge challenges residents to conserve water above and beyond typical daily practices. Last year, residents from more than 1,000 cities in all 50 states pledged to reduce their annual consumption of freshwater by nearly a billion gallons and prevent more than 70 million pounds of hazardous waste from entering watersheds.
Residents from winning cities will have the opportunity to win hundreds of prizes, including a Toyota Prius Plug-In, water-saving fixtures, and gift cards.
