Keeping Local Water Safe

Remember that what goes down drains may go into lakes, streams or Puget Sound. We can all help by:
  • Keeping paints, oils and pesticides out of storm drains
  • Fixing leaks from vehicles
  • Taking cars to a commercial car wash that recycles water before going to the treatment plant
Washing Vehicles
If you wash your own car:
  • Wash it with biodegradable soap over grass or gravel
  • Use a bucket and a hose nozzle to limit the amount of soap and water used
  • Wash only the outside of the car, not the engine
