Its not news that we're in one of the worst droughts ever in west Texas. So, people all over the big country are looking for ways to conserve our precious resource: water. One Abilene business is helping to save water. Now you don't have to feel guilty about washing your car anymore.
"About 80 to 85 percent of all the water we use is recycled " Said Luke Kittley, manager of Xstream in Abilene. They're doing their part to conserve water by using recycled water, but don't worry its still clean.
It's a three phase water recovery system and each phase its gets a little bit cleaner." Said Luke Kittley. "Its about a third of what you use if you washed your car in your driveway. "
But it doesn't stop there; Xstream took it a step further to save water. Surrounding the car wash, the landscape may not look green but its green in a different way.
"We used xeriscaping its just less water to use and more to save." Said Kittley.
All this water conservation doesn't just mean a cheap water bill, its means a lot more in west Texas."Its kind of ironic in water rationing you can't water your grass but you can wash your car. We want to be as eco-friendly as we can especially in west Texas " Said Luke Kittley.
