Eden Prairie’s Mayor Asks Residents to Take ‘Water Pledge’
Eden Prairie Mayor Nancy Tyra-Lukens is challenging Eden Prairie residents to take a water pledge.
According to the Sun Current, the effort is part of the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, a free online contest that’s presented nationally by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota. The contest has residents pledge to conserve water, energy and other natural resources throughout April.
Citizens can make a pledge at mywaterpledge.com, noting their residency in Eden Prairie, and if enough residents participate, the city could be recognized in the national competition, the report said.
The cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in each category are entered into drawings for eco-friendly prizes. Eden Prairie will be competing against other cities in the Midwest with populations between 30,000 and 99,000, the article said.
