You’ll be able to see how much water a car wash uses. The city and county have set up a new car wash certification program. Those businesses must meet certain criteria to be certified. That includes measuring how much water each type of wash uses and then posting those numbers online. Tim Brown of the Albemarle County Service Authority says the business owners have supported the effort because they want the public to know the steps they’ve taken to be water-efficient. For car washes in the county, certification is required if they want to stay open during a drought.
