A new voluntary water conservation program will allow Albemarle County car washes to stay open in drought warning conditions, officials said Wednesday.

The Carwash Certification Program, conceived by the city of Charlottesville and the Albemarle County Service Authority, will help promote car washes that install low-flow toilets, limit how much potable water they use per wash, adhere to best management practices and immediately repair leaks.

The program is voluntary, though car washes in Albemarle County that do not participate will not be allowed to operate during a drought warning, officials said.

City car washes be under no such restriction.

In Albemarle County, nine car washes have signed up, officials said. Only two car washes in Charlottesville have opted in.
