    Count down is on!  Each year the City of Grand Junction has moved up four slots.  Looks like this year is our year for #1!

    Oh No!  Grand Junction has slipped to #3 in the Mayor's Challenge!  Look like we need to "up" our game.
  • Reflection Question
    Waterwise Home Eat A Little Less Meat
    How could you "flip" some of your favorite meals to increase vegetables, beans, and grains and reduce meat protein?

    I purchased a cookbook specifically for meatless recipes.

    Waterwise Home Fix Leaky Faucets
    Fixing leaky faucets is one of the tasks that we can easily put off until later. Good job on completing this action! How will you use the momentum from completing this action to increase your water efficiency in other ways?

    Easy fix to save water.  Bathroom needed a new washer.
