April 1, 2017
Windsor Mayor Kristie Melendez joined mayors across the country in asking residents to make a long-term commitment to manage water resources more wisely by taking part in the annual Wyland National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation April 1-30.
In return residents can win a new Toyota Prius, water-saving fixtures, and hundreds of other prizes, according to a news release from the town of Windsor.
The annual challenge, a non-profit national community service campaign, encourages leaders to see who can best inspire their residents to make a series of informative and easy-to-do online pledges at http://mywaterpledge.com to use water more efficiently, reduce pollution, and save energy, according to the release.
"I encourage all Windsor residents to take the Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation pledge," Melendez said in the release. "Water is a critical resource, and we must all do our part to conserve and use our natural resources wisely."
