Don’t Drip and Drive at Hopworks Brewery @ Hopworks Brewery
Jul 18 @ 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Don’t Drip and Drive at Hopworks Brewery

Whether your home one block or several from a stream, river or lake, what starts in your driveway can end up as toxic stormwater runoff and contribute to water pollution. According to a study by the WA Department of Ecology, an estimated 600,000 quarts of motor oil and fluids leak into our SW Washington watersheds each year.

Want to help protect SW Washington’s water quality? We’ve partnered up with Hopworks Urban Brewery in Vancouver to offer free oil leak checks to the community. To learn more about Don’t Drip and Drive, click here.

No previous automotive experience is required! We will provide all instructions at the on-site volunteer orientation before the event at 4:00pm. Event begins at 4:30pm.
