The Sixth Annual National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation is a competition between cities across the country, April 1-30, 2017, that uses a series of online pledges to see which city can be the most waterwise. In addition to individual reductions in water consumption, energy use, and pollution, residents can save money, help their city meet conservation goals, and earn a chance to win any of hundreds of great prizes. Winning cities are the cities with the highest percentage of residents participating in the challenge. Participating residents from the winning cities will be entered to win thousands of dollars in eco-friendly prizes including a Toyota Prius Prime, home irrigation kits, home improvement store gift cards, and more!

How It Works

  1. Go to www.mywaterpledge.com April 1-30
  2. Take a 4-step conservation pledge on behalf of Laguna Beach
  3. See how much you’ve pledged to save and Laguna Beach's current standings
  4. Encourage friends and family to take part

While Californians have seen record rainfall this past winter, Laguna Beach residents remain committed to saving water. Due to the state's history of drought, water conservation has become part of our lifestyle. This ongoing effort is important for long-term water reliability. The Mayor's Challenge raises awareness about water conservation and, by extension, the positive implications these reductions have on our local and global environment from the energy we use to the products we make to the food we grow, package, eat, and sell.

The non-profit campaign is presented nationally by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota, with support from the U.S. EPA WaterSense, The Toro Company, National League of Cities, Conserva Irrigation, Earth Friendly Products (makers of ECOS), and mayors and water agencies throughout the nation. The Wyland Foundation is a non-profit environmental education organization founded by local marine life artist, Wyland.
