Pledge to conserve water this April for the chance to win prizes

March 28, 2023

The City of Hayward is once again participating in the annual Wyland National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation, a friendly competition between cities across the country. Through the challenge, residents can pledge to make water-friendly lifestyle changes, undertake home-based environmental projects, and more for the chance to win. 

To join in the 2023 challenge, residents must submit their pledge between April 1-30. Participants in the cities with the highest number of pledges are eligible to win hundreds of prizes, including the grand prize of a full year of paid utility bills up to $3,000.

Despite the recent rains that have eased drought conditions, year-round water consciousness is critical to protecting our local water supplies. Visit to find out how to make your pledge and learn more about additional water conservation programs in Hayward.
