TUCSON - Tucson wins the Mayor's water challenge to conserve water!
Mayor Jonathan Rothschild wants to thank Tucsonans for pledging to save water. Tucson came in number one in its size category in the Wyland Foundation's National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation. Tucsonans who pledged have been entered into a drawing to win prizes.
During the challenge, Tucsonans pledged to save 38,829,430 gallons of water and $1,620,720; and to reduce waste in our landfill by 959,198 pounds!
In addition, Rain Bird, one of the challenge's sponsors, has agreed to donate irrigation equipment to the City of Tucson's Tourney Park.
"I am proud of Tucsonans for stepping up and pledging to save water as part of this challenge," said Mayor Rothschild. "We are a water-conscious community and I'm glad we're receiving national recognition for that."
Tomorrow the Mayor will officially thank Tucsonans for taking part at Council Chambers at Tucson City Hall at 1:00 p.m.
