water Quality Matters
Now that spring is here many of us will be getting outside to clean our cars and ready our recreational “toys” for a summer of fun. The following are some tips to help keep our waters clean:
●■ Use a commercial car wash or wash your car on a lawn or other unpaved surface to minimize the amount of dirty, soapy water flowing into the storm drain and eventually into your local waterbody.
●■ Check your car, boat, motorcycle, and other machinery and equipment for leaks and spills. Make repairs as soon as possible. Clean up spilled fluids with an absorbent material like kitty litter or sand, and don’t rinse the spills into a nearby storm drain.
●■ Remember to properly dispose of the absorbent material. Recycle used oil and other automotive fluids at participating service stations. Don’t dump these chemicals down the storm drain or dispose of them in your trash
