Take The Water Pledges (Both of Them)

Take The Water Pledges (Both of Them)
Posted on 03/07/2017

The city of Cottonwood Heights challenges all residents to take part in two pledges to help conserve water in our community.

The first is the H20ath Water-wise Pledge, sponsored by the Utah Division of Natural Resources. Last year, Cottonwood Heights won a $5,000 grant for conserving the most water among communities of the same approximate population, beating out Bountiful, Murray, Tooele and other cities. The competition will run again in late summer. Keep checking the city’s Facebook page or website for more information on this friendly competition.

The other water conservation effort is the nationwide 6th Annual Mayor’s My Water Pledge. It’s a friendly competition sponsored by the non-profit Wyland Foundation, among cities across the United States to see who can be the most “water-wise.” 

Mayor Cullimore has again joined the challenge, urging residents to conserve water, energy and other natural resources on behalf of their city through a series of informative, easy-to-use pledges online. You can take the challenge at  http://w3.mywaterpledge.com/. The challenge will take place between April 1-30.

Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in their population category win. Participants in the winning cities are eligible to win individual prizes. 

Cottonwood Heights is situated between two canyons that supply water for the Salt Lake Valley. Mayor Cullimore, the City Council and staff are very aware that water is one of our most precious resources, and needs to be preserved and maintained responsibly if we are to flourish.  We challenge our citizens to take action to conserve and protect our treasured water supply.
