Dallas one of five cities named “Most Water Wise”

The City of Dallas is one of five national winners in the Sixth Annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation for its efforts in 2017 to encourage residents to reduce water use by 37.4 million gallons of water over the next year. The annual campaign to promote drought resiliency and water quality ended April 30 with mayors from 38 states vying to see whose city could be the nation’s most “water wise.”

Other cities with the highest percentage of residents making pledges during the campaign included Laguna Beach, CA, Athens, GA., Flagstaff, AZ and Aurora, CO. Overall, residents around the nation made 421,891 pledges to change behaviors ranging from fixing home leaks to reducing harmful runoff into local rivers and streams.
