Bartlesville Mayor Dale Copeland is asking residents to make a commitment to manage water resources more wisely by taking part in the Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation.
This is a non-profit community service campaign taking place through April 30 aimed at encouraging leaders to inspire residents to usewater more efficiently, reduce pollution and save energy.
Last year, residents from all 50 states and more than 3,800 cities took the pledge to reduce their annual consumption of fresh water, reduce waste sent to land fills and prevent hazardous waste from entering watersheds. Copeland says the city of Bartlesville did very well last year and added there are prizes available if you sign up such asdiscounts on utility payments.
