Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation

April 1 - 30

The Mayor’s Challenge is a competition between thousands of cities across the United States to see which city will have the most residents take a pledge to conserve water and increase sustainability. Residents who take the pledge have a chance to win prizes, including paid utilities, home improvement store shopping sprees, water-reducing fixtures for your home or yard, and more! Oceanside’s Mayor Peter Weiss is challenging Oceanside residents to go online to www.mywaterplege.com and pledge to make a more sustainable Oceanside. From April 1st to April 30th, sign in with either your email or Facebook account, identify you’re from Oceanside, California, take the water pledge and remind your friends and family to do the same.
