Disposing Of Contaminated Water

Aug 11, 2008
It is a really good thing that we have outside spigots and hoses to connect to them because there are a multitude of things that can only be done outdoors that require the use of water. We try to do as many of these chores as we can during the warm months when the weather is pleasant. Some of these outdoor jobs are somewhat enjoyable and some of them are not enjoyable at all.

One of the things that we tend to not mind doing so bad is washing our vehicles. Many people do this task at home in the driveway or back yard all the time. For those who love their ride a lot, this can be one of the enjoyable things. There is nothing like having a spic and span car to get around in. We can buy all kinds of cleaners, waxes, and polishes for the outside and upholstery cleaners, shine products, and air fresheners for the inside. We can use gallons and gallons of water for just one washing and possibly contaminate our lawns with cleaning substances that are not environmentally friendly.

Cleaning things on the outside of the home itself are other times when we might use chemical products for cleaning things like decks, patios, vinyl siding, brick, or walkways. We need to be more aware of the ingredients that are in some of these products that we use for outdoor cleaning projects. Some of the ingredients can be harmful to plants, pets, or even our children. If you have a well on your property that supplies the water for your home, it is even more essential that you use care with what chemicals come into contact with your yard.

When we wash things like car oil pans, paint buckets and utensils, or even when we use certain pesticides, all of these components can leave toxic elements we do not want in our ground water or do we want our kids and pets exposed to. Using products for cleaning that are non toxic with more natural ingredients will usually do just as good for most cleaning as the hazardous ones. When we clean paint tools or greasy oil pans from the car or any other thing that is not good for the ground in our yard, the water should be contained and disposed of where it will do no harm.

It can be a good idea to have a plastic barrel that will not leak some where on the property to dispose of this kind of contaminated water and hazardous by products from cleaning toxic things around the home. When it is full it can be disposed of at a proper facility for this kind of waste.
