Clean Water Tip

CAR WASHING

Wash your car at a commercial car wash or on the lawn so that wash water can be absorbed and naturally filtered, avoiding streets and storm drains.

What you can do

Take Action

Maintain oil tanks both above and underground, as leaking underground storage tanks are a major source of contamination to both surface water and groundwater. Check tanks regularly for leaks.
