[ARCHIVED] Conquer the call to conserve; Mayor Gray invites residents to take the pledge

Conquer the Mayor's Conservation Challenge!

Castle Rock is a community that understands conservation. As the Town moves forward with its long-term water plan, Castle Rock Water has set a goal to cut back 18 percent of water use by 2055. With that goal in mind, Castle Rock Water and Mayor Jason Gray are encouraging residents to take conservation to the next level.

The Mayor’s Conservation Challenge is encouraging residents throughout Castle Rock to think about ways to conserve more water around their homes. Join this call to conserve by taking a free online conservation pledge at

While the pledge only takes a few minutes to complete, fulfilling the pledge could add up to big savings for our community. Pledge to take a shorter shower, fix that leaky faucet, wash only full loads of laundry or invest in Energy Star appliances. 

“Thanks to for helping to encourage conservation through the National Mayor’s Challenge,” said Mayor Gray. “In a friendly spirit of competition, I challenge the Castle Rock community to out-conserve Greeley during this year’s challenge. That’s the closest community to our population category. Let’s show Colorado that Castle Rock is serious about water conservation as a way to save money and secure water for our Town’s future.”

Head to now through Tuesday, April 30, for more information. Each pledge increases Castle Rock’s rank nationally. Help our Town make it into the top 10 water-conscious communities in the nation for the fourth year in a row.

The Town is partnering with the Wyland Foundation, as well as the National League of Cities, EPA Office of Water and the U.S. Forest Service to encourage residents around the country to take the online pledge. Participants are also eligible for a host of prizes worth more than $50,000 sponsored by the Wyland Foundation – including $3,000 off your utility bill!
