Manhattan Beach, CA, Wins Water Conservation Challenge
May 3, 2012
A year ago on this date, the cities of Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach claimed the No. 1 and 2 spots in the 2011 National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation [an online competition held throughout April to encourage residents in all 50 states to conserve water, save energy and reduce pollution].
This year, Manhattan Beach is one of the 12 winning cities being honored by The Wyland Foundation and Toyota, who created the Challenge in honor of the 40th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act, the primary federal law protecting water resources in the United States.
Laguna Beach is the only other California city to place in the top 12.
