Car Wash Outreach & Surface Water Management

Storm Drain Red Brick

If you don't want it on your car, why would you want it in your stream, or your salmon?

Perhaps one day the beloved community car wash fundraiser, and even home car-washing, will go the way of other auto-related phenomenon—like the buggy whip or hand-crank windows—but until then we need to be sure these activities are practiced in a way that ensures wash water toxins are appropriately diverted and treated.
