Car Washing 

  • Drive your car onto your lawn before washing. This prevents the dirty soapy water from going into the stormdrains.

  • Use a commercial car wash station that recycles its water to trap dirt, oils, greases and auto fluids, and other pollutants and keep them out of the Indian River Lagoon.

Car Maintenance

  • Regularly check vehicles and lawn equipment for leaks. This prevents oil, grease or other chemicals from going into the stormdrains.
  • NEVER dump chemicals into the street, inlet or stormdrain!
