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

In April, Issaquah is participating in the seventh 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 would save 2,132 gallons of water per year. The National Mayor's Challenge is a friendly competition among 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 Issaquah wins, participants will be eligible to receive prizes such as $5,000 toward their home utility bills, home irrigation kits, home improvement store gift cards and more.

The cities of Bremerton and Seattle were both in the top 10 for their respective sizes last year! Take the My Water Pledge and spread the word to help Issaquah win!
