Mayor Dale Copeland is asking Bartlesville residents to make a long-term commitment to manage water resources more wisely by taking part in the annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation.
In return residents can win $3,000 toward their home utility payments, water saving fixtures and hundreds of other prizes. Plus, one charity from a winning city will receive a 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid to serve the community.
The annual challenge, which began April 1 and runs through April 30, is a non-profit national community service campaign that encourages leaders to inspire their residents to make a series of simple pledges at mywaterpledge.com to use water more efficiently, reduce pollution and save energy.
“I encourage all residents to take this pledge so we can all do our part in conserving water,” Copeland said.
Last year, residents from more than 3,800 cities in the U.S. pledged to reduce their annual consumption of freshwater by 3 billion gallons, reduce waste sent to landfills by 79.9 million pounds, and prevent more than 177,000 pounds of hazardous waste from entering our watersheds.
