No Home or Mobile Car Washes

I pledge to not wash my car at home or hire a mobile car wash to come to my home. I will wash my car at a car wash because washing a car at home discharges dirty waste water into the ground and/or storm drains.

Car washes use much less water than running a hose at home to wash your car, and car washes capture and reuse waste water, then send it waste water treatment plants to be cleaned. Learn more in this NYT article.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) regulates the discharge of industrial wastewater to the ground water, surface water, and to sewage treatment plants through permitting programs. Discharge limits and requirements for treatment, monitoring and reporting, designed to protect the waters of the state from pollution, are specified in all permits.
