Town of North Hempstead Partner Organization to Hold Water Conservation Photo Contest
North Hempstead, NY – Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the North Hempstead Town Board are partnering with WaterSense, a United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program that seeks to conserve the future of our nation’s water supply by offering people easy ways to minimize water waste with the use of water efficient products, professionals, and services.
Currently, the WaterSense Program is hosting a photo contest in order to get people involved in water conservation. They are seeking photo entries that showcase landscape transformations or landscapes that feature water conservative plants.
“High consumption of water through lawn maintenance, disregard for running water, leaky faucets and long showers are all causes for rapidly falling water levels on Long Island. It is vital that people are aware of the importance of conserving water in their daily lives,” says Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “We’ve partnered with WaterSense because of its mission to preserve our nation’s water and to help members of our community inspire others to do so as well. That is exactly what this photo contest does.”
Entries can be submitted on the WaterSense Facebook page under the “Photo Challenge” tab, or on a public Twitter or Instagram account using the hashtag #watersavingyard.Participants can also email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. The top submissions that incorporate both aesthetic and water efficient landscapes will receive national WaterSense recognition!
