Standings for Manhattan Beach as of Monday, April 26, 2015, around 12:17 p.m.

The City of Manhattan Beach has slipped to 9th place in The Wyland Foundation's Mayor's Challenge for Water Conservation, according to the website. The city is competing in a category with towns whose ranges from 30,000 to 99,999 in the Southwestern region. Poway is presently at No. 1 in the category as of press time. Cities with the highest percentage of residents who take the challenge in their population category win. 

The goal of the foundation's competition is to encourage everyone to use water wisely. The online pledge only takes a few minutes and alerts the pledger to actions they can take to reduce their consumption. The pledge is educational and informative. The challenge ends Thursday, April 30 and began April 1.

Links to other online conservation resources in the Southwest are provided here and a rebate on a water saving Waterpik shower head is here.

  • Grand Prize: Toyota Prius v

  • 50 Smart Irrigation controllers from the Toro Company

  • 40 hand held EcoFlow® shower heads from Waterpik
One of the winning cities will be randomly selected to receive a pocket park landscape makeover, including state-of-the-art water efficient irrigation from the Toro Company (ARV $10,000-$50,000).

In addition, winning cities will also be provided with a customer engagement and data analytics solution that is proven to improve water-use efficiency and generate operational savings for water utilities.

In 2014, Huntington Beach was a winning city and in 2013, Laguna Beach was a winning city.
