Take care washing your car

Washing your car in the driveway allows soap and other chemicals to run into storm sewers that empty into streams, rivers and eventually the oceans.

For more information on issues like this, see the Troubled Waters information on this website.

How can I do this?

Washing you car on the lawn will allow the water to soak into the grass and soil -- reducing the pollution of our waterways. Use non-toxic cleaners whenever possible. To learn more, check out The Clinton River Watershed Council's guide to Boat and Auto Car Off-site Link.
