[ARCHIVED] - Water Conservation Challenge: Save Water, Win Prizes -

In April, Issaquah is participating in the sixth annual National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation.

Take the My Water Pledge to start conserving water and help Issaquah win! 
By pledging to turn off the water when you brush your teeth or wash only full loads of laundry and dishes, you're helping to do your part to conserve water in our region.


In 2015, Issaquah's residential water use represented 60 percent of total use, averaging over 52,000 gallons per household. Learn more about our community's water use in our most recent Sustainable City Report.


The typical American household does nearly 400 loads of laundry per year, with an average of 41 gallons of water per load. If each household reduces one load per week, that would save 2,132 gallons of water per year.


The National Mayor's Challenge is a friendly competition among cities across the country to see which city can be the most water-wise.

Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge will win. If Issaquah wins, participants will be eligible to receive prizes such as a Toyota Prius, money toward home improvement projects and water conservation tools.


Bremerton was one of the winning cities last year! Take the My Water Pledge!
