water pledge

Brighton residents can show their support to conserve water, energy and other natural resources by joining the Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation from April 1 - 30. For the challenge, City of Brighton Mayor Gregory Mills is joining mayors across the country in asking residents to make a long-term commitment to reduce pollution and manage water resources more wisely by making a pledge on behalf of Brighton on mywaterpledge.com

“This is a fun way for us to show our commitment to water conservation,” said Mayor Mills. “Collectively as a community, the small actions we take daily to reduce waste and promote sustainability will make a big difference in taking care of one of our most precious resources - water.”

The winning city is determined by the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge. Cities will compete in the following population categories: 5,000-29,999, 30,000-99,999, 100,000-299,999. 300,000-599,999 and 600,000+. By making the pledge, residents are entered for a chance to win $3,000 towards utilities bills and bluetooth timers, gift cards, e-gift cards, eco-friendly gadgets, daily prizes throughout the month (travel mugs, surf towels and more) and the chance for daily bonus prizes. In addition, one lucky charity from a winning city will receive a new 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

Take the pledge today by clicking here. To learn more about the challenge, visit brightonco.gov/mayorschallenge. The deadline to make the pledge is April 30.
