"Unlike household waste water that enters sewers or septic systems and undergoes treatment before it is discharged into the environment, what runs off your car goes right into storm drains -- ...and eventually into rivers, streams, creeks and wetlands where it poisons aquatic life and wreaks other ecosystem havoc."
