This is the first year that the City of Laurel has participated in the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation for Earth Month. We finished third among City’s our size which is almost unheard for rookies.
Mayor Craig A. Moe wants to thank each and every one of you who pledged and helped us make a splash in our first ever water conservation challenge. In all, the City of Laurel tallied up 5,828 pledges, with a water savings of 23.6 million gallons.
Not only did you conserve water, but you helped protect our environment and natural resources.
We encourage you to continue the pledge throughout the year and prepare for next year’s challenge.
Here are some ways you can continue the water pledge:
- Install a rain barrel.
- Install water-efficient goods such as showerheads, faucets, etc.
- Don’t leave the water running while brushing your teeth.
- Fix leaky faucets and toilets.
- Take shorter showers.
- Water your lawn/garden in the early morning.
- And use full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher.
Thank you again to everyone for your participation and next year let’s take First Place!
