The city of Bloomington, Minnesota, has replaced its old vehicle wash station with a new one. According to a press release, the old station had become "unreliable" and "ineffective."
Update to Lead to Savings
One of the major improvements with the new wash station is the addition of a salt neutralizer in the underbody wash. It reduces component failures due to rust issues, saving money and helping the city meet environmental goals. Because of the old wash, the city was spending on average $25,000 per year on rusted snowplow truck springs.
The new system also has a low-pressure option to protect the vinyl wrap on police vehicles, as well as the addition of end-of-wash air blowers.
The wash system investment was $228,832. An additional $854,467 was allotted for other facility improvements like a new power system, ventilation, garage doors, and a heated slab to prevent water from freezing, making the exit icy and dangerous to walk on.
