The City of Kissimmee in partnership with Toho Water Authority joins the nationwide challenge to be most “water wise” starting on Monday, April 1, 2019.
The City of Kissimmee is joining mayors across the country in asking residents to make a long-term commitment to manage water resources more wisely by taking part in the annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation.
The annual challenge, April 1- 30, is a non-profit national community service campaign that encourages leaders to inspire their residents to make a series of simple pledges at mywaterpledge.com to use water more efficiently, reduce pollution, and save energy.
How It Works

In 2018, residents from over 3,800 cities in all 50 U.S. states pledged to reduce their annual consumption of freshwater by 3 billion gallons, reduce waste sent to landfills by 79.9 million pounds, and prevent more than 177,000 pounds of hazardous waste from entering the watersheds. The Challenge looks at the ways the water use will affect the future of the communities — from how people grow food to reducing polluted runoff.
