What is the protocol for car washing?
Car washing is permitted with use of a positive shutoff nozzle and is allowed all hours of the day of the approved watering days. The use of a positive shutoff valve on the water hose is required. It is also encouraged to use a bucket and a cloth if at all possible. You must also avoid excessive water running down driveway or gutters.
