Castle Rock achieves third place

The Mayor’s Conservation Challenge is a friendly competition between cities across the U.S. to see who can be the most water wise. Mayors nationwide 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 at More than 600,000 pledges were received from thousands of communities in 35 participating states. Castle Rock, compared to other cities of similar size from throughout the country, received enough pledges to rank third place. Castle Rock has participated for the past five years and has ranked in the top 10 for each year. 

The non-profit campaign is hosted by Toyota and the Wyland Foundation, in association with National League of Cities, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Water, U.S. Forest Service, among others. Pledge participants are eligible for thousands of prizes worth a total of $50,000 that include cash for utility payments, water efficiency products, and a car for a chosen charity. The campaign is usually held every April, during Water Conservation and Earth Day month; however, it was postponed until August in 2020.
