Three cities are pulling away entering the final stretch of the Orange County breakaway Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge. Three weeks into the Challenge, the cities of Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach and Westminster are leading Orange County with all three ranking in the National Challenge top ten.
The Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge, now in its sixth year, seeks to reward participants for making a commitment to use water more efficiently. In March, 2017, the Board of Directors for the Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) upped the ante and approved a partnership with the Wyland Foundation to hold an Orange County spinoff of the Challenge.
The Orange County city with the highest number of participants in the Challenge will be awarded a water-wise pocket park makeover for their city along with bragging rights amongst their OC neighbors. The winner of the OC Challenge will be announced June 1, 2017.

The challenge is presented by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota, in conjunction with the National League of Cities, U.S. EPA, U.S. Forest Service, the Toro Company and Earthy Friendly Products (the makers of ECOS)
