The city was asked by California to reduce water use by 28 percent, stated the article.

Home carwashing can use more than 100 gallons of water compared to carwashes equipped with recirculating water systems, which can use less than half that amount, continued the article.

“More often than not, I see a river of water running down my street because neighbors are washing their cars,” said Allen Drucker, a Newport Beach resident, in the article. “We’re letting our lawns die to conserve water, but we’re not willing to take our cars to the carwash and do the same?”

Drucker frequents The Car Spa once a week, reported the article, which the location’s manager, Alu Almeida, says uses around 16 to 18 gallons of water per wash.

Eric Wulf, CEO of the International Carwash Association (ICA), estimated that every minute in use, around eight to 10 gallons of water leave a household hose, the article noted.
