Car Care World Expo Preview - July 2003

Car Care World Expo Review Part II

Water usage and conservation again featured prominently at the International Carwash Association's recent Car Care World Expo 2003. In his State of the Industry address, association president Mike Black pointed out that the ICA's Water Usage Studies had effectively created a model program that could be used in any geographic area facing water shortages to ensure that local car wash operators could stay open for business. To drive this message home, seminars were presented on subjects such as "How to Prevent a Water Ban," "How to Survive a Water Ban," and "Are You Ready for Reclaim?"
