Saving water starts at home. Taking a few, simple steps when washing your boat or vehicle (including automobiles, trucks, motorcycles, and trailers) can help to save water and protect the quality of nearby waterways.

  • Wash vehicles using a bucket with soapy water.
  • Rinse vehicles with a hose equipped with trigger nozzle attached.
  • Using a low flow high power pressure washer can conserve even more water
  • washing the car on the lawn, using biodegradable cleaning chemicals, gives your grass a good watering in addition to cleaning your car.
