Wash It Right

Healthy Rivers Start at the Car Wash

The water that runs off your vehicle during a wash can carry pollutants such as oil, antifreeze and rust, not to mention soap, into local waterways. Help keep our water clean when it's time to wash your car, truck or van.

  • Take your vehicle to a car wash that recycles used water.
  • If you clean your vehicle at home, wash it on your lawn with biodegradable, ammonia-free soap. You can also roll old towels and divert the used water from the driveway to your lawn.
  • Consider using buckets of water instead of letting the hose run and save up to 150 gallons of water.
