An April 3 post on the Huffington Post's Green blog described the Second National Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation taking place all this month. The post describes the growing popularity of this competition and how the race to conserve water in cities is suddenly an exciting thing.
The article reads, in part:
"Suddenly, it seemed, water was sexy. The cities that won were completely engaged, from their schools and local companies to the chamber of commerce and city leaders, many of whom took to Twitter and Facebook. Others made their own YouTube videos, took to the streets, or challenged their neighboring leaders to a water challenge throw-down."
