The COVID 19 pandemic has created a difficult time for everyone. It is times like this, the support of your association is needed more than ever.

As the situation began, SCWA immediately went to work for our members and the industry to provide needed information and to educate public officials on the “essential business” nature of car washing. SCWA is continuing to identify resources that will help members and the greater car wash community rebound stronger than ever. Current SCWA Members are receiving regular email updates and opportunities for educational webinars. If you are not a member and would like to be included, click the green JOIN/RENEW button above on the right.

In addition, SCWA:

· Worked with Texas Governor Abbott to have car washing confirmed as “essential businesses” in Texas.

Facts & Myths

  • Many in our communities are not aware of the efforts of the car wash industry to conserve water. Sometimes when communities face water need issues there is a tendency to base decisions and rules on reactions rather than facts. Many times these misunderstandings result in decisions unfair and inappropriate to the car wash industry.
  • The Southwest Car Wash Association wants to be an active community partner in helping to provide correct information and assist in creating solutions to water conservation based on facts and fairness rather than on old misconceptions or misunderstandings.
