They researched, interviewed water experts, met with city officials and conceived an application to help local residents track their water use in real time using their mobile device.
Fall is one of my favorite seasons and not just because it means the end of summer heat and the welcome of crisp autumn mornings.

This year was no different – over the last two months we have collected pledges from 131,207 employees, totaling more than $36 million!
