Lubbock has joined the National Mayor's Challenge for water conservation. The goal is to lower water usage across the country. One of the best ways to conserve water is through landscaping and irrigation.

Lubbock and residents from more than 4,800 cities across the United States took part in the 2017 Wyland National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation, which promotes water conservation and being water-wise at your home and business. 

The city is encouraging citizens to take a water-wise pledge and conserve as much as possible to keep Lubbock beautiful. The effort was announced at the city's Landscape Recognition Award. Parkhill, Smith & Cooper, near 84th and Quaker, received the award. 

Mayor Dan Pope said Parkhill, Smith & Cooper serves as a landscaping leader. To join the effort visit www.mylubbock.us/KLBLandscape.
