Mayor Greg Raths is joining other mayors across the nation in asking citizens to commit to using water more efficiently. On behalf of the City of Mission Viejo, Mayor Raths has taken the first step toward this commitment by joining the annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, a month-long community service campaign to inspire citizens to make long-term commitments to water-use efficiency. The participation process is simple! Residents visit mywaterpledge.com and make a series of online pledges to conserve water on behalf of the City of Mission Viejo.

Cities that join the National Challenge compete across five population categories: 5,000-29,999 residents, 30,000-99,999 residents, 100,000-299,999 residents, 300,000-599,999 residents, and 600,000+ residents. Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the pledge in their population category are also entered into drawings for hundreds of eco-friendly prizes. As an added incentive to Orange County residents and businesses, the Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) and Wyland Foundation, will award a water-wise demonstration garden – or Pocket Park – to the city within MWDOC’s service area with the most pledges. The awarded park will serve as a community model for water-efficient landscaping and will include plants, design, irrigation and strategies to promote sustainable water use.
