Stormwater Tips for Car Washing

Washing your car in your driveway or on the street can result in pollutants (detergents, oil, gas, road grime, and heavy metals) making their way into the storm drainage system. The wash water and pollutants are then carried by the storm drainage system and discharged directly into our waterways. These pollutants are toxic to fish and other aquatic life.

When it’s time to wash your car, these tips can help protect and enhance the water quality of our creeks and lakes:

  • Take your car to a commercial carwash. Most commercial car wash facilities recycle the wash water or are connected to the sanitary sewer system that will treat the used wash water.
  • Wash your car on a grass or gravel surface to filter runoff and allow it to infiltrate
  • Consider using environmentally-friendly products labeled “non-toxic,” “phosphate free,” and “biodegradable.”

Reminder to Alcohol Establishments – Handler Permit Checks Underway
