It's that time of year again - join Mayor Andrus and pledge to do just one thing to save water!
The City of Bozeman will be taking part in the Wyland National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation. Go to www.mywaterpledge.com and pledge between April 1 - 30 to save water.
Since April 1, 2018 U.S. Residents have pledged to save 4,686,043,611 gallons of water - what will we save in 2019? Make your pledge today and do just one thing to save water in our community - Water Smart Bozeman!
What Is The Mayor's Challenge?
Glad you asked! The challenge is a friendly competition between cities across the United States to see which city is the most "water-wise." Nationwide, Mayors challenge their city's residents to conserve water, energy, and other natural resources through a series of informative, easy-to-use pledges online - found here!
Cities with the highest amount of participants in their population category can win some pretty sweet prizes for themselves and their community. Prizes for residents in winning cities are eligible to win items ranging from $3,000 towards your home utility bill to a $500 shopping spree at a home improvement store, and more. Not only that, but there is a community grand prize where your favorite charity can win a brand new 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid!
