No driveway car "wash" in Washington State
Better get ready to buy a new Atlas, as the Pacific Northwest renames one of it's own "Ington State".
It's a darn good thing I like keeping my truck in a tip top redneck "dirty" state.... otherwise I would be concerned !!!
Along with wild salmon and steelhead trout, the Pacific Northwest soon may have another endangered species — the driveway carwash.
Washing your car or boat in the driveway or street is a residential ritual as American as backyard barbecues. But the state of Washington is telling its local governments they must prohibit home car washing unless residents divert the wash water away from storm drains, where they say it causes water pollution.
Washington just recently banned Phosphates from all dishwasher detergent in several counties and left consumers with no options on the shelves except two non working enviornmentaly friendly brands which cost 4 times that of normal detergent. (The shelves where actually empty in my area of "all" options for 3 weeks after the law went into effect).
