Yard waste, such as grass clippings and leaves, do not belong in a storm drain. Not only do they clog the storm system and cause unnecessary flooding, but organic debris also pollutes our waterways and can cause eutrophication – a reduction in oxygen levels in our rivers and lakes which harms and kills aquatic wild#cleanthedrainsd#recycleyardwasted#SWPPP##washmow#WaterWiseWednesdaynesday ...

So will you be cracking down on people blowing their yard clippings onto the street and sidewalks 🤷‍♂️

I’m pretty sure the 5 inches of rain in 12 hrs flushed out any blockage that may have occurred.

There is a large tree that fell during the last storm laying in Busch Creek behind Cherry Ln that will cause problems if not removed. I left a voice mail with the public works dept yesterday.

Also grass clipping don't belong in the street..dangerous for motorcycles

Thank you for posting this. Shared.

Exactly

When washing your car in the street or your driveway, an average of 120 gallons of soap and grease filled water goes down the storm drain and into our creeks and rivers. Using a bucket and dumping the dirty water in the sink will not only save on water usage but will help keep our water clean.

All I want to know is how do I get the dirty soapy water off my car and back into the bucket 🤣 maybe I should just skip the rinsing process and leave the dirty soapy water on my car. 🤦‍♂️

I can’t see using anywhere near that much water washing a car, or even a semi truck!At the body shop I work at,we wash cars all day long and one 5 gallon bucket lasts 2-3 cars and only a small mount of soap is needed. I use more water taking a shower every night! And the grease traps in our drains have hardly any oil in them when they are cleaned out, which is a couple times a year!

PSA ,,, Talking about 150gal of water USAGE to wash ur car , if you are using PWS 3 in Villa Ridge on old 100 I highly recommend every one read your digital water meters when you receive the statement on usage & costs what they are charging you for the month prior usage as the digital drive by meter readings are incorrect charging homeowners over 1000/1500 or more gallons monthly raising your water bill 20 a month & if 200k homeowners are being charged that 20$ more monthly you do the math 200k residents × 20$ monthly is alot of change PWS #3 is getting it's in the millions per month please read your meters & stop getting screwed.. Iv been monitoring my meter since Nov 20th of 2023 n the math wasn't mathN i confronted them over it & they got pissed they weren't pleased said I was tampering with meter I laughed my attorney laughed & to keep me quiet they came and installed a analog meter & now the usage has been only like 50/70 gall off, i have pictures of meter I take once a week to verify usage to compare it to statment they send about the 12th Of the following month I also have a class action attorney lined up willing to take the case as if they were doing it to my residence they are doing it to 80% of home owners in Franklin county using there service, Feel free to private message me if you think they are lining there pockets illegally with your hard earned money's , please take photos of meter & statment usage to calculate your losses & their gains as if you have sewer service also your being charged for what's coming in to your homes/ business & going out of your homes/ business ,, as a lot of people just take for granite Franklin co PWS#3 is sending correct billing statement & homeowners just blindly pay the assumed charges & never question..

What about the car wash? Where does the water go?

First off no way people are using 120 gallons, who’s not using a bucket to hand wash a car. No matter what the water will eventually go to creeks and rivers weather its in the storm drain or down your kitchen drain.

I am not the brightest crayon in the box but how do i get the water back into the buckets after i rinse my truck off?😂

I think Washington has bigger things to worry about!

When you pay my bills and sleep in my bed. Then you can tell me what to do. Now go eat your bugs and leave us alone.

Every single time it rains all the dirt and grease on the cars gets run down the storm sewer as well, it's a nice attempt at grandstanding but it doesn't get it.

If you dump the dirty water and grease down your street then your causing the same problems within the water pipes and such😂👀

Maybe suggest an environmentally friendly soap as your current suggestion is not really pheasable for car washers! I understand and appreciate your want to protect the environment but this may not be the best advice for that.

I can soap and rinse my car completely on $1.50 worth of time at the car wash. I doubt that I use that much water.

I would love to see you catch the dirty water from washing the car in a bucket! Dumb ass post

But if it rains, it's going to rinse all that stuff off the car and into the drain anyway.... Sooooo.....

How dumb! I agree with Shelley Tinsley that the City has bigger things to worry about.

All drains lead to the ocean

They never do think before they speak or post do they?

Is this a satire page?

This is the dumbest post ever.

Is there not any car washes in Washington County? Where does their water go? I never use a 120 gallons to was my vehicles..

120 gallons? Ever heard of a spray nozzle??? 🙂

This PSA, will most likely be deleted for some unknown reason, as the attorney the water company uses is employed by Franklin Co & is part of the city council.. Sincerely Pete Caloni

Bless your heart.

Go to a gas station or grocery store and look at the giant oil spots in every single parking spot and every stoplight and stop sign. That’s ending up in creeks and rivers every time it rains and you’re concerned and 120 alleged gallons of water with a splash of soap diluted in it? What pray tell do we use to clean animals with they’re contaminated with oil?

moron that wrote this is making $180k
