To Save Water, Depot Cancels Sunday’s Car/Pet Wash, Gets $500 from Aquarion

The drought Darien has been going through and the water restrictions imposed by Aquarion Water Co. has led to The Depot canceling (for now) its pet wash/car wash that was scheduled for Sunday.

“We will reschedule for a later date so let those cars get and stay dirty!” the Depot said in an announcement. The new date is Sunday, Oct. 9, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The youth center has a consolation prize, however — Aquarion is donating $500 to the nonprofit community institution in recognition that it had scheduled the event before the watering ban had been announced.
