NOTICE TO ALL PROPERTY OWNERS IN THE CITY OF PORT WASHINGTON WHERE ASPHALT DRIVEWAYS OR PARKING LOTS ARE PRESENT - Updated 04/14/2021
Since 2017, the City of Port Washington has banned the usage of Coal Tar Based Sealants for sealing asphalt driveways, parking lots, or any paved surfaces. Coal tar based sealants contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) which are highly toxic to humans and animals, and pollute our waterways, including Lake Michigan.

Please be aware that the private, public, or commercial sale or usage of coal tar-based sealants in the City of Port Washington is strictly prohibited, and all violators are subject to a minimum fine of $250, and a minimum of $1,000 fine for commercial applicators.

When hiring a contractor, be sure to ask if they use coal tar based sealants so that you can inform the contractor that they are not permitted. Insist on an asphalt based sealant instead.
