Windsor, CO Joins Nationwide Conservation Challenge

Town of Windsor Mayor Kristie Melendez 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 Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation. The annual challenge, April 1- 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.

Windsor residents would compete in the 5,000- 29,999 population category.

Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in their population category have a chance to win $3,000 toward their Home Utility Bills, and hundreds more eco-friendly prizes including Toro Irrigation Smart Controllers, ECOS home cleaning products, and home water fixture retrofits from EcoSystems Inc. In addition, residents can nominate a deserving charity from their city to receive a 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Plus, one lucky charity from a winning city will receive a 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid to serve the community.

“I encourage all Windsor residents to take the pledge for water conservation,” Melendez said. “Water is a critical resource, and we must all do our part to conserve and use our natural resources wisely. I challenge our residents to use less and make our town and environment better by doing so.”

Last year, residents from over 4,800 cities in all 50 U.S. states 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. 

The 8th 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, EcoSystems Inc., and Earth Friendly Products (makers of ECOS).
