The following information was provided by the City of Sumner in its weekly Community Connection e-newsletter:
Charity car washes are great, but please make sure your next fundraiser car wash is not also pouring grease, oil and soap into the Puyallup River. The City has a free Car Wash Kit for you to check out that diverts car wash water to the sewer system to be cleaned before going back into the environment.
To check out the Car Wash Kit, contact Donnelle at firstname.lastname@example.org or 253-299-5709. If you're out using car washes, make sure they're Clean and Green, using either the City's or another car wash kit to keep the grime out of our stormwater and rivers.
