Is it illegal to wash your vehicle in your driveway or street at your house?

It’s only ILLEGAL to wash your car at home if there is a declared drought and the CCC Water District has had to make certain restrictions. But, if you can, try to use environmentally safe soap and arrange to have the overflow go into your lawn or flower beds instead of down into the street guttering, where it is just wasted.

A business owner in Martinez was warned with a fine if he hosed his roof off or washed his car. The ‘inspector’ stolled into the business like he owned the place and fired numerous questions and threated fines for having a hose accessible on the property.

The ‘inspector’ claimed that the water coming out of the hose polluted the bay.

Just reporting was was heard by a fellow employee. No, this is not cool. The influx of millions into California yearly has caused this excess ‘polution’.

I have always been conservation concious and the reward I got for this lifestyle was to have my water usage lowered well beyond the neighbor waterhogs. I wrote a letter to complain and was told in essance ‘too bad’. That was my reward for living like a concerned citizen, per the local bureacracy.

Do I sound angry? You betcha!

What a joke!! The District begs its customers to save water, claiming it will save money. Now, because we have saved water, they want to raise the rates in order to pay for retirement benefits.

Mike mac: By Jove, you’ve got it. PG&E is doing the same thing. Lowering rates but also lowering the base rate. Most folks are desperate for happy news and don’t read between the lines and miss the one sentence out of hundreds that tells the real story.
