Car Care

Storm drains found in our streets and roadside ditches lead to our lakes and streams. Therefore, if dirty water flows into the storm drain while washing your vehicle, it pollutes our local waterways. Also, if your vehicle leaks motor fluids onto driveways and streets, those can also wash into the drains and pollute our waterways.
