[ARCHIVED] - Water Conservation Challenge: Save Water, Win Prizes -

National Mayor's Challenge For Water Conservation

For the month of April, Issaquah is participating in the Fourth Annual National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation.

Take the My Water Pledge to start conserving water and help Issaquah win!

By pledging to turn off the water when you brush your teeth or wash only full loads of laundry and dishes, you're helping to do your part to conserve water in our region.

The typical American household does nearly 400 loads of laundry per year, with an average of 41 gallons of water per load. If each household reduces one load per week, that's a savings of 2,132 gallons per year!

This is a friendly competition between cities across the country to see which city can be the most water-wise. Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge will win. If we win, participants in the city will be eligible to win hundreds of prizes, including a Toyota Prius, money toward home improvement stores and water conservation tools.

Bremerton was one of the winning cities last year! Take the My Water Pledge now to help Issaquah win!
