The City of Shorewood participates in the annual Wyland National Mayor’s Water Challenge for Water Conservation. Mayors nationwide challenge residents to conserve water, energy and other natural resources on behalf of their city through a series of informative, easy-to-use online pledges. The month-long competition takes place April 1 – 30 of each year.
Cities compete in categories based on population. The city with the highest percentage of residents who register to take the challenge wins. Individuals who participate in the Mayor’s National Water Challenge are eligible to win prizes! The grand prize given to an individual is free utilities for one year (up to $3,000).
What are you pledging to do?
You can pledge to do things as simple as take shorter showers, turn the water off when you brush your teeth, recycle, pick up pet waste, walk/bike more often, etc.
How to register?
Take one minute out of your day and go to mywaterpledge.com. You could help our city win while helping us protect our planet.
1. From April 1 to April 30, go to www.mywaterpledge.com (do not register prior to April 1)
2. Register & take a four-step conservation pledge on behalf of the City of Shorewood.

Why pledge early?
There is great information including activities for parents, teachers, and youth organizations online that are perfect for Earth Day on April 22 and it is never too early to become “water-wise.” If all of Shorewood signs up, Shorewood will win this contest!
“I hereby challenge residents to help Shorewood become the nation’s most “water-wise” city by registering for the National Mayor’s Water Challenge.” --Mayor Jennifer Labadie, March 2021
