Title

Proclamation for Water Conservation Month and Recognition of the Mayor's Challenge (B)

 

Explanation

Each year municipalities across the country declare April as Water Conservation month to promote awareness for water conservation and the importance of water as a vital natural resource. This is an opportunity to inform the public about our high-quality drinking water and the vital role drinking water plays in our daily lives. Citizens are asked to know their groundwater source and to conserve and protect this valuable natural resource for future generations.

 

In addition, the Wyland Foundation sponsors an annual national water conservation contest that encourages citizens to take a pledge to save water in their daily activities. This is a fun competition that promotes the importance of water conservation behavior. Citizens can pledge to conserve water at https://www.mywaterpledge.com.

 

Fiscal Note

None.

 

Recommendation:

The Mayor issue a proclamation for Water Conservation Month and announce the April 2021 water conservation contest, The Mayor’s Challenge.
