Upcoming Fish-Friendly Car Wash Events
Meeker Elementary 6th graders held a car wash in May 2015 to raise funds for an upcoming event.
They did their part to protect our local streams from car wash water, soap, oil and other pollutants.
Thank you Meeker students.
While fund-raising car washes are a great idea, think of the extra attention your organization could get by promoting an environmentally-sound, fish-friendly car wash.
Fish-Friendly Car Wash Kits a available for FREE check-out from the City of Puyallup. The kits use a stormwater drain insert and pump to send the dirty car wash water to the sewer system or direct it to a grassy area to filter into the ground, instead of the stormwater drains. Come to the Utility Billing counter on the 3rd floor of City Hall to pick up an application, or download one here.
Want to buy one for your organization? While we don't sell them, we can direct you to the company ours were purchased from: Bowhead Environmental & Safety. The City does not endorse, promote, or otherwise recommend this company over any others - this information is provided for your convenience.
