April is here, and so are the wildflowers!  This April also marks the 6th Annual National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation.  Visit mywaterpledge.com to sign up for the challenge and help Round Rock be the most water conserving city in the U.S.A.!  It’s free, it’s fast, and it helps bring awareness to our most precious and valuable resource: water!

By saving water, Round Rock saves energy, money, and valuable resources. That’s why Mayor McGraw and I are encouraging you to take the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation this month.  By making a simple pledge to save water around your home, you are not only doing your part for our community – you can win any of hundreds of prizes, including a Toyota Prius, Home Improvement Store Gift Cards, Toro Smart Irrigation Controllers, and much more.  Who doesn’t like to win prizes?!?

Plus the pledge helps further our City’s goal of reducing our water consumption and being the most efficient city in Central Texas, if not all of Texas!  Currently, Round Rock residents (on average) use 75 gallons of water per person, per day.  That’s good low number compared to some other nearby cities…but I know we can make it lower.

Simple things like not watering after a rain storm, replacing an old toilet or showerhead with a new WaterSense labeled one, and fixing leaks are small things to do that make a huge impact on our water use.  It can also save you money.

During last year’s campaign, Round Rock ranked #7 in our city population category (100,000 – 299,999 residents).  Let’s show the other cities around the nation how Round Rock takes care of our planet. Make your pledge throughout the month of April at mywaterpledge.com.

Let’s go save some water, Round Rock!
