Washing a car in the driveway puts contaminated water into storm drains and wastes up to 140 gallons of water. Instead, use a commercial car wash that uses its own water recycling system, biodegradable soap and reusable towels.

Washing vehicles on pervious areas, such as cobblestones, is prohibited because they are not connected to a proper oil and water separator.

On-post wash facilities for privately owned vehicles:

• Kelley Car Wash, Kelley Barracks

• Automotive Skills Center, Building 2926, Panzer Kaserne

• Patch Car Wash, Building 2384, Patch  Barracks
