Save & Protect Our Lagoon
It’s good to get dirt and salt off our cars so they look good and last long but improper car washing directly damages our lagoon and waterways. NEVER allow your car wash water to run into the road - all City roadways have stormdrains that lead directly to the lagoon. Even if it dries up in the curb – the next rain will take the soapy dirt residue out to the lagoon. It’s “better” to wash your car in the grass so the soil can sop up the mess but don’t forget that the groundwater is not far under your feet. BEST to bring your car to a commercial carwash that cleans, filters and recycles its water - and then discharges it to the City’s sanitary sewer system for treatment.
