Mayors Challenge

2012 National Results

A heartfelt thanks to the many thousands of people across the country who participated in the Wyland Foundation's first annual National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation.

Residents from 1,000 cities in all 50 states made online pledges at to save a total of 4.7 billion gallons of water over the next year, with a potential cost savings of $11.6 million. Residents further pledged to reduce their use of single-use plastic water bottles by 1.1 million bottles and eliminate 60,000 pounds of hazardous waste from entering watersheds. The program will resume again in April 2013 with more water-saving prizes and new ways for you and your city to take everyday actions for environmental change.

Special thanks to our National Presenting Partner Toyota. Organizations also involved in spearheading the Challenge included the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Water, U.S. Forest Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, WaterPik, Rain Bird, Lowe's, STERLING Plumbing, PADI and Project AWARE, and our regional broadcast partner, KCAL / KCBS

Winning cities were determined as those with the highest percentage of residents to make water-saving pledge in their zip code. Cities competed in four U.S. Regions (West, Midwest, South and Northeast) and three population categories within each region (5 - 30000, 300000 - 100000, and 100000+)

About My Water Pledge

A message from Gina McCarthy, Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in support of the National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation.

My Water Pledge is a friendly competition between cities across the US to see who can be the most “water-wise.” Mayors nationwide will challenge their residents to conserve water, energy and other natural resources on behalf of their city through a series of informative, easy-to-use pledges online.

Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in their population category win. Cities will compete in the following population categories: 5,000-29,999, 30,000-99,999, 100,000-299,999. 300,000-599,999, 600,000+). Participants in the winning cities are eligible to win hundreds of prizes. By the way, your mayor doesn’t have to participate for your city to win… But every person makes a difference! Last year, the challenge awarded more than $50,000 in prizes to nearly 1,000 residents in U.S. cities.
