Fire Department Santa Run Begins This Weekend

Each year, the Peachtree City Fire Rescue Department escorts Santa on an early visit through Peachtree City to help collect non-perishable food and toy donations for those in need this holiday season.  The event begins this weekend, December 7 & 8 (Saturday, 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., and Sunday, 11:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.) and will wrap up December 21 & 22.  View the estimated route and schedule at https://peachtree-city.org/DocumentCenter/View/16129/Santa-Run-Route-2019 (emergencies -- and snow -- may alter the schedule).

Stormwater Tip – Washing Your Car

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

The following practices can help protect and enhance the water quality of our creeks and lakes:

  • 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.”
  • 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.
