Proposed E. Hampton car wash faces complaints from residents

Some residents in East Hampton have come out against a special permit request for a car wash to be built in their town.



Members of the Citizens to Preserve the East End say the 5,400-square-foot business could damage the surrounding environment on Springs Fireplace Road and clog up a one-lane access road used for the town's recycling center and garbage dump.



Greg Darvin, who applied for the permit to build the car wash, says the establishment would collect all water runoff in a holding tank and then have it trucked away, eliminating any environmental impact. He added that traffic shouldn't be an issue either.



"We did a traffic study and the impact is negligible," he told News 12.



The car wash proposal needs final approval from the East Hampton Planning Board. No date has been set yet for a vote.
