It is well known that as little as one quart of oil can contaminate 100,000 gallons of drinking water. Similarly, each time it rains, hydrocarbon petroleum material is being washed off of concrete surfaces as "run-off" finding it's way into the natural environment.
Up until now well intentioned manufacturers of commercial liquid cleaning chemicals, solvents, and degreasers have been manufacturing products designed to emulsify and solubilize oil, grease, gasoline and along with very large quantities of "rinsing water" and power equipment provided a solution for cleaning concrete.
Unfortunately, this process creates contaminated toxic waste-water that finds its way into soil, storm drains, sewer systems, underground watersheds, and into much larger bodies of water where organic life is being negatively impacted. Environmental regulations have been enacted in most states establishing severe penalties for willful violators and occasionally, unaware property owners, that they are responsible for exterior property maintenance cleaning, and the disposal of contaminated waste water.
