Mayor Nancy Tyra-Lukens is once again challenging Eden Prairie residents to conserve water, energy and natural resources by participating in the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation.
This free online contest is a friendly competition between cities across the nation to see who can be the most “water-wise.”
Throughout the month of April, Tyra-Lukens encourages residents to pledge online at mywaterpledge.com on behalf of Eden Prairie, and promise to follow a series of conservation measures for their homes, yards and cars, such as washing only full loads of laundry, fixing leaky faucets, and walking or biking short distances.
Eden Prairie will compete in the Midwest region, versus other cities with similar populations (30,000-99,000). Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in their population categories are entered into drawings for hundreds of eco-friendly prizes, including home improvement gift cards, home irrigation equipment and a Grand Prize Toyota Prius.
Ideas for what residents can do to conserve our natural resources are available on the mywaterpledge.com website and in the Living Green section of the City’s website, edenprairie.org/livinggreen.
