Helena mayor challenges residents to conserve water

Helena Mayor Wilmot Collins is joining mayors across the country asking residents to make a commitment to reduce pollution and manage water resources more wisely.

The Wyland Foundation National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation runs the month of April, and Collins encourages residents and businesses to take the pledge and track standings at mywaterpledge.com.

With the Helena area in extreme drought, the city encourages people to not only plan now for the potentially dry summer ahead but also for the future as these dry years become more frequent.
