Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve issued a challenge today through the rest of the April to conserve water use as part of a national contest.

The National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation runs from April 1 to 30, 2016 and encourages water and energy conservation.

“We live in a high-desert, arid climate where water is a limited resource,” Schieve said. “The City of Reno is proud of our efforts to conserve through operational efficiencies, and we applaud residents and businesses for exceeding a community-wide goal of reducing water use by 10 percent in 2015.

“Please join the City of Reno and Truckee Meadows Water Authority (TMWA) in continuing responsible water use in 2016 by pledging to take actions that are easy, from checking and fixing leaks and installing water-efficient fixtures to installing drought-tolerant plantings and employing water-efficient irrigation.”

Residents can enter to win a Toyota Prius, as part of the process, along with water-saving fixtures and other prizes.
