Each year, Mayors across the nation encourage their citizens to use water more wisely by taking part in the Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge.

The annual challenge runs from April 1-30, and last year alone, residents from more than 4,800 cities across the U.S. pledged online to save over 2.2 billion gallons of water!

As an added incentive to Orange County residents and businesses, the Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) and the Wyland Foundation, have partnered together to award a water-wise pocket park to the winning city within MWDOC’s service area. The MWDOC service area includes all of Orange County except for the cities of Santa Ana, Anaheim, and Fullerton.

To help Orange County cities within the MWDOC service area succeed in the Challenge, MWDOC has put together a media kit that includes a news release template, sample social media posts, and tips for success. Contact us at to request access to the kit.
