Moline Mayor Wants Residents to Save More Water, Energy & Resources

Michelle O'Neill
Mayor Sangeetha Rayaputi talks about how to sign up for the contest while River Action's Kathy Wine and Living Lands and Waters Mike Coyne-Logan listen.

Moline's mayor is asking residents to help the city win a competition called, "My Water Pledge."

This month, Mayor Sangeetha Rayapati says the city is facing off against other cities to become the most "water-wise." The city with the highest percentage of residents who take the pledge will win.

She says those who already conserve water and save energy can help by spreading the word and encouraging friends and family to participate.

The goal is to encourage more people to make long term commitments to conserve water, save energy, and reduce pollution.
