Wash recycles 40,000+ gallons of water per week

MIDLAND, TX ― Kwik Kar Wash and Service Center uses nine sand traps to help process and recycle the used carwash water.

MIDLAND, TX ― The Kwik Kar Wash and Service Center here is now recycling up to 42,000 gallons of water each week, according to the Midland Reporter-Telegram.

The July 10 story said the carwash washes about 200 cars per day, and uses about 35 gallons of water per car. Only a few of those gallons come from the city's fresh water supply.

The carwash's manager, Steve Rister, said in the story. "All the water that comes off the vehicles goes into a drain running down the center of the carwash, where it goes through a recycling process and is re-used."

The process includes nine sand traps which remove the soap, polish and other chemicals.

When the wash was opened in 2006, it was under the idea that it would be completely environmentally friendly. Even the chemicals used are environmentally friendly. Each week, FCC Environmental visits the carwash and removes the "oily water" from the system.

Current water restrictions in the area have restricted at-home carwashing, which has also benefited the wash.
