WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—The City of West Lafayette is challenging residents to become better environmental stewards through water conservation.
It's a National Mayor's Challenge inspired by the Wyland Foundation and Toyota. It encourages communities to explore ways to manage residential consumption of water and power.
The Wyland Foundation is a non-profit organization. It's dedicated to promoting, protecting, and preserving the world's ocean, waterways, and marine life.
People living in West Lafayette can register their participation online. Residents can make simple pledges to decrease their water use and reduce pollution for a year. Mayor John Dennis said this is a great initiative.
"We just need to make sure that when people are turning on the taps at home, when they are watering their lawn, they are cognizant of the fact that that's a finite resource," said Mayor Dennis.
