Palm Coast - There's just a few days left in the National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation, so be sure to take or renew your pledge by Tuesday, April 30. The City of Palm Coast is currently ranked 2nd in the nation for a city in our population group.
Please go online at www.mywaterpledge.com between now and April 30 to take the Water Challenge Pledge!
This is Palm Coast's fifth year to participate in the national competition. Last year, the City came in 18th in the nation for cities with a population of 30,000-99,999. This is the closest the City has ranked to the top spot.
The annual Wyland Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation is a non-profit national community service campaign during the month of April to see which leaders can best inspire their residents to make a series of informative and easy-to-do online pledge to use water more efficiently, reduce pollution and save energy.
To participate, residents enter online at www.mywaterpledge.com and then make a series of online pledges to conserve water on behalf of the City of Palm Coast. Cities compete in the following population categories: (5,000-29,999 residents, 30,000-99,999 residents, 100,000-299,999 residents, 300,000-599,999 residents, and 600,000+ residents). The City of Palm Coast has 86,516 residents.
Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the Challenge in their population category are entered into drawings for hundreds of eco-friendly prizes. Residents could have the chance to win $3,000 toward their home utility bills, home irrigation kits, home improvement store gift cards and more. You can also nominate your favorite local charity. The charity with the most nominations from each winning city will be invited to submit a questionnaire to share how they would use the winning prize, a 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, to serve their community. The charity with the highest service score based on the judging criteria will receive the vehicle.
