WCA Drought Information and Resources

save_water.jpgBecause of the drought emergency in California WCA is doing the following:

  1. Working with our lobbying firm to ensure that the message from the state level recognizes that professional car washes conserve water.
  2. Tracking drought stages and communicating with various water agencies to encourage communities to use professional car washes.
  3. Gathering resources and information to provide WCA members with help during this crisis.
  4. Encouraging WCA members to join the International Carwash Association (ICA) WaterSavers program which provides consumer marketing and important data to back up our water conservation efforts.  

Visit the Environmental section of our website under Industry Information for additional resources. Be sure to have your log-in name and password available.
   
We are encouraging all of our members to share the resources with regulators and consumers. Be sure to keep the WCA office informed of your activities so we can assist where possible.
