During April, Join Me in the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation
Celebrate Earth Month by participating in the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation. With your support, Aurora can remain one of the top water-wise cities in the country. Join me and the Aurora City Council in the pledge to save water.

The challenge was created by the nonprofit Wyland Foundation to protect watersheds and ecosystems, save costs for consumers, promote drought resiliency, and save infrastructure and operating costs for cities. The campaign encourages people from all walks of life to conserve water and other natural resources to help ensure a sustainable future for all our communities.

Participants will be eligible to receive hundreds of prizes, including water-saving devices, gift cards to home improvement stores, eco-friendly cleaning supplies and more. If our city receives the highest percentage of pledges in our population category, the grand prize of $3,000 will go to one lucky winner.

Pledge any time during the month of April and join your fellow Aurora residents in this effort to conserve water. Make your pledge at AuroraGov.org/Challenge.
