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.
