Vehicle Washing BMPs

Planning to wash your car this weekend? Ever wonder where all that water goes after it runs off your driveway? This water does not get treated and carries pollutants such as oil, detergents, and cleansers into storm drains; it flows directly into local streams and eventually reaches the Chesapeake Bay. To help keep our water clean, consider using biodegradable cleaning products, and wash your car on the lawn, instead of the driveway. Even better, take your car to a carwash facility that recycles its wash water.
