Water Wise Challenge

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 9:15 AM by Katie Stamy

Because of fast-growing water demand in our region, Galveston Bay is at risk of losing the levels of freshwater it needs to support a healthy habitat for fish, shellfish, and other important wildlife species that depend on it. 

Water conservation is one of the most effective ways to combat this – and now, Bay-area residents have a chance to win while conserving.

As part of an effort to conserve our regional water supply, Galveston Bay Foundation (GBF) is launching the Water Wise Bay Cities Challenge, a friendly water conservation competition designed to engage residents from 20 cities located in the southeast Houston area.

The goal of the Water Wise Bay Cities Challenge is to encourage residents to take the pledge to conserve water at gbwb.org/water-wise-bay-cities-challenge/. 

The three cities with most pledges in relation to their population size will win the challenge. Additionally, one resident from each winning city will be selected through a random drawing and will receive a prize. Prizes include Moody Garden family passes, Artist Boat Eco-Art Kayak trips, and more.

The Water Wise Bay Cities Challenge will end on May 10, 2017, at 12 p.m. and GBF will recognize winning cities and residents at its Bay Day Festival on Saturday, May 13, 2017, from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Kemah Boardwalk in Kemah, Texas.

Represent the City of Webster by pledging to conserve water today!
